Holy Week 2016 - Thursday

Like a heavy old winter coat
Our brokenness drapes our shoulders
“Come, lift this load!”

Fellow travelers on this human journey
Seem little help, brokenness drapes them.
“Come, lift this load.”

Distraction of the latest TV show
The joy of some good news comes,
Yet, we cry, “Come, lift this load.”

Guilt soaks brokenness’s coat;
Shame drips from brokenness’ cover.
Yet, we cry, “Come, lift this load.”

A Broken One joins our sojourn
Bearing marks of brokenness.
“I was broken for you.”
