Did you see the sun rise

awakening the day

bringing forth life

in such an extra-ordinary way


when was the last time

you stared into the night sky

moon and stars playing

twinkling so bright


precious hands and feet

wiggle for the first time

lungs that never sang

find their way to breathe


born of a virgin

heaven’s perfect gift

lay in a manger

no room in the inn


the Word became flesh

dwelt among men

and still to this day

abides within.


There is no miracle

as miraculous as this

Jesus God’s son

became the ultimate gift.

And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7 . . .

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
