The Greatest Offering

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “offer.” We would love to have you join us.

A crown of thorns

upon his head

Nails driven

Unto his hands

Blood spilled out.

Last words spoken

Father, forgive them,

For they know not

What they are doing.

Last breath taken

On that dark dreary Friday night

Then sheer utter silence.

Tears falling from Mary’s face

Her son no longer alive

Laid in a tomb

His life given for all.

Three days later

The first women preachers

Come to the tomb

And find it empty,

Where is our Lord?, they ask.

The grave has been overcome

Death has been defeated

God’s greatest offering!

  1. The greatest offering I can give
    is defiance in the face
    of that which will not see me live
    beyond its lethal embrace.
    Cancer wants to hew me down,
    make me beg for drugged relief
    that makes me wear a hazy crown
    and a vague surcease.
    But this is not what I was taught
    and the lessons still remain.
    No matter what the hurt you’ve brought,
    it’s I who brings the pain.
    My mentors, they have taught me well;
    I’m coming back, straight outta hell.
