Three Nails by Raymond A. Foss

Three nails sit, quietly
on the top of the cabinet
next to the stack, bible,
devotionals, reading to do,
by the prayer shawl, the prayer
the prayer He taught us

Three spikes, into our savior’s body
reminders of our sin, our shame
the price he pays for our breach,
our evil, while we live

Three nails sit there still,
quietly speaking the truth
that day on Calgary
my sin those nails,
my shame that cross
my brother carrying my burden

Three nails to remember
how he loves us so

Upper Room devotional for June 17, 2008
