At Christmas time love descended in Jesus and that same love abounds today. Happy Christmas!
Laughter of reunion voices,
Fading through the night breeze,
Secluded in obscurity,
Cry of life – born for me.
Carved on Mary’s face,
Faintly inklings of foreboding,
Echoing loving grace.
Divine, dependent boy.
Thousand years of prophetic light,
Lavished blessing – our joy.
Running feet, gruff country voices,
Shepherds shyly shuffle,
Angelic announcement sharing,
Lost in awe, most humble.
Shafts of moonlight illuminate,
The sound of peace descends,
Embodied freedom sleeping now,
God’s love surrounds, transcends.
