If you’ve ever been in a labor and delivery room, you know it wasn’t a silent night.
But more than the sounds of Mary’s anguish and joy...
Consider how the centuries must have resonated that night.
There’s much more taking place here than the birth of a babe.
Centuries of oppression are falling away, as the birth of grace lightens the age-old law.
No longer a burden, the law becomes an expression of love, a response to the grace gift.
Listen carefully to that not-so-silent night.
Cattle lowing, angels singing,
Mother sighing, shepherds praising,
Echoes of a wooden cross
resound that blessed night.
Resting in a feeding trough…
Embrace the Bread of Life.
I'm linking up with Laura, Michelle, and Jen today.
