just say something
then the little girl screams his name..."GIGOT!!!" he stops and slowly looks at her...there is concern in her eyes as she stares up at him. she takes his hand, smiles, crosses herself, blows a kiss to the cross, and tugs at his hang, leading him away.
for some reason, i haven't been able to get that scene out of my head. and here is why: so many times, we have the oppurtunity to tell others about Christ and what He has done for us, and yet we don't and think nothing of it. yet here is a man who cannot speak who is so passionate about telling a little girl about what Jesus did for us that he starts to beat himself when he realizes he can't. why don't we have that passion? why do we not have that desperation in our eyes when we realize that someone does not understand that Jesus is the only way?
and why is there always a still small voice that calls us back from our endless tirades or downward spirals of self-hatred, the voice that smiles at us, takes our hand, and helps us to realize that although we fail, life goes on and we have another chance?
