I’m reading my Bible this month, following along in Luke chapters 1 and 2, enjoying the wonderful details of the Christmas Story… that ageless story of the prophecy areound, conception of and humble yet miraculous birth of my Lord Jesus Christ. I came across this poem in the sidebar of my Bible (Women’s Devotional Bible – NIV), and want to share it with you today. It is lovely.

As if until that moment
had happened since creation
As if outside the world were empty
so that she and he were all
there was – he mover, she moved upon
As if her submission were the most
dynamic of all works; as if
no one had ever said Yes like that
As if one day the sun had no place
in all the universe to pour it’s gold
but her small room.
