The Father's Plan

There was a plan
Before time began
Birthed in the Father's heart.
A wonderful plan,
A woman and man
In a garden set apart.

"We'll make day and night,
Fill the sky with light,"
Said the Father to His Son.
"A perfect place,
Filled with peace and grace
Where we'll fellowship as one."

"A wonderful plan
To create a man,"
Said the Father with aching heart.
"But before it is done,
My precious Son,
You will have to do Your part."

Before time began
He knew the plan,
This perfect, sinless Son.
And with loving heart said,
"Let us start,
I am willing to be the One."

Oh my word....

I love this, Linda.

I am always so intrigued by the thought of the Trinity all being involved in Creation. Powerful, powerful image here.
