He will be born…

Look not at the days gone by with a forlorn heart.  They were simply the dots we can now connect with our present, to help us draw the outline of a beautiful tomorrow.  
 
~ Dodinsky
 

and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it is written by the prophet:

6 ‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
who will govern my people Israel.’”

 

Matthew 2:4-6

Jesse’s Garden

He will be born in the dust of the silk trade route, and in the tumult of war,

He will be born in the schism between Sarah and Hagar.

He will be born in the hot tears feeding the garden as you plant life to vanquish death,

 

He will be born in the night, in the dark,

and in the brazen light of God.

 

He is born in your heart, 

and in the hearts of those whom you shine upon.

 

Prepare the stable,

Lo, a rose is blooming.

 

 

Because of Him,

Linda
