Evil, Only Slightly…

I am evil, but just a little bit.

Or so I am told.

It is actually quite annoying  just being a a tad evil.  There isn’t enough inside to make me a super-villain or anything cool like that.

People just spontaneously announce my evilness to others when I leave a room.  Sometimes my mere presence causes them to flee.  My best friend’s mother sees it or maybe feels it.  She tells her all the time.

Men find me intimidating.. must be my evil core.

How did I become evil? No clue.. None at all.

One day, I was a sweet rose and then next day my thorns were attacking people without my knowledge. Evil just took me over.  I didn’t even noticed. Most folks still say I am pretty nice even sweet.  They never see the evil luring behind my eyes.

Where the evil comes from, I don’t know. But it is there.

Or so I am told…

Thorns

This is one of my favorite songs from, as my students would say back in the day.. And in light of what today is for many people, it was time to share…

Thorns on His head, spear in His side
still in was a heartache that made Him cry
He gave His life so you would understand
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

If Christ Himself were standing here
Face full of glory and eyes full tears
He’d there His arms and His nail-printed hands
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

How could you look in His tear-stained eyes
Knowing it’s you He’s thinking of?
Could you tell Him you’re not ready to give Him your
life?
Could you say you don’t think you need His love?

Jesus is here with His arms open wide
You can see with your heart
If you’ll stop looking with your eyes
He’s left it up to you, He’s done all He can
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

How could you look in His tear-stained eyes
Knowing it’s you He’s thinking of?
Could you tell Him you’re not ready to give Him your
life?
Could you say you don’t think you need His love?

Thorns on His head, your life is in His hands
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

Oh, is there any way you could say no to this Man?
