it is an old song now
that don’t impress me much
society at large is not easily impressed
by anything these days
apparently God gets impressed
at least that is what i heard Him whisper in the night
how could THAT possibly be?
He loves to hear our praises
more than that
quite opposite of a world that is not easily impressed
God can be impressed
because of His relationship with us.
like a father or mother
clapping gleefully for their child’s
clever action or words,
he can be impressed.
you can see them unapologetically
performing an absurd action or phrase in order
to get their child to repeat
even the simple, stumbled-over, mispronounced
faces shine with admiration and pride
at their child
not because of performance
