My feet got cold so I moved in closer
When he felt me shivering he pulled me in, and asked "what's wrong?"
I mumbled, still half asleep
"Well here, put these on..."
he said pulling off his socks and handing them to me
until later when I fully woke and wondered...
How did I end up in his socks?
And then the faded memory became clearer...
We've celebrated the birth of Christ and what
how God unrobed
became a man and died
so that we might be clothed!
"Here, put this on"
"Wear my garment"
"I'm here now, I'll hold you close and protect you from this cold world"
And then we wake to find that the entire family has also
and that a new perspective has been gained...
from the child who once stayed indoors
who now heads out to glory in a new day...
to the highly active, "never-sit-down" child
who comes inside to find a quiet place to worship...
He's caused a change...
and maybe it happened sometime between midnight and 3am
because I woke this morning clothed...
and thanking God for
and the realization that this is more than just
