Merry Christmas


“And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:12)

“Let the Stable Still Astonish”

Straw-dirt floor, dull eyes,
Dusty flanks of donkeys, oxen;
Crumbling, crooked walls;
No bed to carry that pain,
And then, the child,
Rag-wrapped, laid to cry
In a trough.
Who would have chosen this?
Who would have said: “Yes,
Let the God of all the heavens and earth
be born here, in this place.” ?
Who but the same God
Who stands in the darker, fouler rooms of our hearts
and says, “Yes, let the God of Heaven and Earth be born here –
in this place.”

– Leslie Leyland Fields

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND MAY 2012 BE FILLED WITH GRACE AND TRUTH.
