One for the other

Listening When He Speaks, Scripture Talk

I’m here. Lord God, right here…

.

Forgive me?

For wandering

about. This advent

coming

is a far cry calendar countdown

to Your Son’s infant, earthly birth.

It’s not only that

manger Babe

shepherds

angels

wise men

and a terrifically bright shining star.

.

This Christmas,

this Christ, this is my

chance to see, behold, 

yes, to hold on

9829sdto that which You so graciously

wondrously

lovingly have given me.

.

An unfathomable opportunity

to unwrap the gift

of my salvation.

.

Mine! Through You

and Yours. Instigated

back in yonder Garden –

an eden

an eternity

an opportunity

to exchange

ordinary world-ish ways

for  a mere thing so simple, yet more extravagant than

humanly imaginable.

9832sdI drop and sink knees low –

humbly offer

one for the

other.

.

I’m here. Lord God, right here…

unwrap me

my heart

my gift.

The Song of Mary

And Mary said:

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.

For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.

For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.

And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.

He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.”

Luke 1:46-52 (NKJV)

  1. *sniffle* Such loveliness, Darlene. Hugs to you and Merry Christmas. You’re on my Christmas card list but here it is six days away and I haven’t even taken the family photo so I’m doubtful I’ll get them out this year. Maybe New Year’s cards? I dunno. But I am sending Christmas love your way. You are special to me, my friend. Count you among God’s gifts to me.

If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
