"And the Word Was Made Flesh"

Advent King in straw-lined splendor,
swaddled gently at mother’s breast,
God incarnate in a pink suit,
not knowing yet His future test.

In the gentle hush of silence,
soothing sounds of cattle lowing,
angel hosts sing Him their praises,
all creation in glory knowing.

Destiny pressing upon His life,
as crossed shadow falls on His face.
The miracle of the manger
now filled with man’s future grace.

~~Blessings, Lynn~~

    How thankful and humbled I am that He would submit to being fully human and yet ...divine. When I stumble and struggle, I'm thankful for His grace.

    Beautiful words!

  4. Absolutely beautiful, Lynn...and I love the photo/illustration.
    Together they are so moving.
    Your blog is looking lovely as well; am I mistaken or do you have a new look?
    Really like the look of your sidebar. :)
    PS Reminds me of my poem about Mary and the baby Jesus, written last Christmas: Look under the label: 4 Faves About Mary - no rush, just thought of it when I read this.

    Thank you, Judi, for your encouragement. I change elements around occasionally. I was really thinking I'd like to have a new skin made. I'm getting tired of this one. Now you make me think twice about it! My heart appreciates your comments. Be blessed...

    I read the title and thought it would be about John 1, which is one of my favorite passages, and was honored to read this wonderful poem. My favorite phrase is, "God incarnate in a pink suit".

    Absolutely beautiful, Lynn! I loved it and am reminded again of how God humbled Himself and took on the body of flesh to identify with us as humans, so that we could identify with Him as a loving Father who touches the heart of mankind.

    Love and hugs,
