God slipped into this world -
through Mary - light sliding
under a door - in a small
village - named Nazareth - not
too far from the Sea of Galilee.
The Word of God whispered
by the Holy Spirit - took flesh
and began slowly to become
a baby - Jesus - Savior - born in
a stable. Mary was his Mother.
Jesus took his time - watching,
learning, growing in grace, wisdom
and understanding - till he finally
announced to the world, mercy
and mystery and the meaning of life.
The Light of the World continues
to slip and slide under doors - into
the dark corners of our minds and
the dark continues pushing sin - but
the dark has never put out the Light.
