They are starting to arrive...
Wrapped in plain brown paper, mostly grocery store shopping bags
inverted and converted
into protective covering for delivery.
Some arrive bound and sealed with enough tape to create suspicion.
“What’s going on here?”
On the outside, plain and uninviting,
yet, on the inside, a gift, a surprise, an unexpected something.
Reminds me of something, no, someone, long ago, yet not so long ago.
Someone who with family and friends ducked under the border fences of His day,
snuck into the places He wasn’t supposed to be -
temples, palaces, hearts and minds of men and women –
and still does today.
