Thoughts for Advent: Day Three

A Poem for Day Three


She must have wondered
Tell me she had her doubts

The story was incredible
Ridiculous, if you must know

She would carry a Savior
And then, strangely,
she was

This young girl
A fledgling
and favored

Chosen

Even so
Even so...
There must have been moments

Fear
Questions
A halting resolve
to believe promises
not a little bizarre

Those who look to him
are radiant 
No shadow of shame
will darken their faces

She must have shone

Not because she was perfect

She must have shone
because she wrestled
and chose to trust
