Bible Marginalia Series- #230
Fulfillment of the Promise
Even if the lights are till up
and the trees glow in our homes,
we begin to go back to life "before" Christmas.
Back to the rush and hurry,
and the lists and the priorities.
What if we would carry
with us this amazing revelation?
The annunciation to the shepherds.
And then they quietly herded sheep
to stop by Bethlehem,
that they might give honor and praise.
Not leaving it up to another to give homage.
Not asking if it was worthy of the effort.
Just simple hearing that deserved an action.
Glory to God in the Highest,
and peace and goodwill to men.
Yes, as we leave the manger viewing,
may we carry with us this same
spirit of praise and rejoicing.
Yes, because of the fulfillment of the promise.
