The Things They Say ( or rather- sing)
He sings… “melts the heart of stone… melts the heart of stone…”
Little boy voice chirps and swells…
I look at him. “Melts the heart of stone?” Grin wide.
“Who melts the heart of stone? Do you know who melts the heart of stone?”
“Jesus!” He replies immediately, whole-heartedly, unreservedly.
I pull him up, into my arms, into my hug. Smiles and happy laughter everywhere.
O, yes He did. He paid it all.
And O, thank You for melting hearts of stone.
