Mary's Song

...older than eternity, 
now He is new...

Now native to earth as I am,
nailed to my poor planet,
caught that I might be free,
blind in my womb to know
my darkness ended.

Brought to this birth
for me to be new-born,
And for him to see me mended,
I must see him torn.

(from "Mary's Song" by L. Shaw, tucked inside a Christmas card from some dear and far-away friends; art by B. Moser)

Whatever joys or troubles this season may hold,
know that this baby was born that you might be new-born, mended and free.

Wishing you a very merry and peaceful Christmas!
