Transforming a Crown

by Michael D Nalley   Jan 29, 2013

Once there was born a heavenly King.
Wise men brought Him Frankincense & Myrrh
Yet nothing did the pilgrimage of the Magi bring
Could the infant ever love more than her
Among all the other women she was blessed
By a son who would give us a golden rule
A holy virgin should stand out from the rest
We thank God she was not betrothed to a fool
No one cares where the silver is, for which He was sold
Nor the crown of thorns He wore while carrying our cross
A Cross became a thrown when Our Lord's crown turned Gold
That is not the most beautiful part. Our gain was not heaven's loss.

    Fantastic, Michael! I think sometimes, we take this story for granted because we've heard it so many times, and we forget how significant it is and how it changed our lives forever.
