Nathan is getting really good on the trampoline.
Forward ones anyway.
The backwards ones are a different matter.
After falling off the trampoline the other day in the attempt,
he's been a bit nervous.
Yesterday I stood at the edge of the trampoline.
Watching him closely as he tried.
He improved but he wasn't quite there.
As he came close to the edge I opened my arms.
He saw me
Came towards me
And gave me a kiss.
I'd opened my arms to catch him quicker.
He'd come for a kiss because he loved me.
I spend too much time messing about
Doing my thing
Facing danger at times
Knowing God is on the sidelines waiting to catch when I fall.
Instead I should be running into the arms of Jesus.
In that place I am
Knowing who I am
I can go out into the world and do what I do.
The view might be different from that vantage point.
