Merry Christmas!

A poem of mine--"Incarnation"--from last year:
This is the emptying.
The release of heaven.
The descent
into the warmth
of a young girl's womb.
Vitally yoked
to her heartbeat and life.
Sharing the scandal
and embarrassment of flesh.
A covenant of love
sealed in ligament and bone.
to God in the Highest.
here in straw and blood.

  1. WOW. That is beautiful.

    Frohe has been an exciting experience bragging to my friends and dropping your name as being the Chair of my Committee ~just a very few years ago~ at ACU. ;)

    Yeah, the reactions are quite diverse.  After referring them to your blog, some feel pity for me and some feel jealous. Tee hee hee. 

    Kent and I listened to Day 11 of 40DOP today. This talk reminded us of some of your viewpoints.
