More than a pool party. More than just "getting wet for Jesus".
Tears of Grace
by Marilyn Mackenzie

Not just a summer swim party
Although there is plenty of splashing
Going on in the pool
For after the fun and the food
After the words of praise
And the harmonic raising of voices
Of songs and hearts raised to Him
Something more is planned

She waits at the side of the pool
Knowing that something important
Is about to take place in her life
They tease about “getting wet for Jesus”
But she knows, anticipates what is to come
She disappears beneath the water, then emerges
To hear, “In the name of the Father, and the Son
And the Holy Spirit, Amen.

For just a moment, she hears the choir of angels singing
She feels His strong arms providing strength, showing love
Her fleeting thought is, “This is what it’s like
To feel the wings of grace – near.”

Today she is His; tomorrow she must face the world
But she will never be alone again
When despair comes – and she knows it will
She will draw on that time when they shared tears of grace.
