Sinkin' in a Little Deeper....

I was driving home from the grocery store, and didn't even realize it was happening. The radio was playing...

"..... I'm forgiven, because you were forsaken....."

by the third line, I realize that I am "seeing" the song with equal clarity as I am hearing it. The words that I have interpreted in American Sign Language are appearing before me in the shape of hands and motions.

As it finishes, I see "You are my king" being interpreted. Of the three words, "You", "my" and "king", the "my" is the one that makes me pause. It is interpreted this time with emphasis.

I think back to this past Sunday - there was another song. The word "my" was put in before "Jesus". I interpreted it as such, and remembered back to the morning when I decided to be re-baptized.

The same feeling was stirring in my chest. If it's possible for my heart rate to slow and accelerate at the same time, it was doing that.

..."You are my king...." the song continued.

MY King. MY God. MY Father. Those words brought a tear to my eye, and I breathed deeply.

Another bit of my heart, reclaimed.
