Gift #527: God in flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made..  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it… The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  John 1:1-3, 14

imageFrom that hand galaxies dripped into existence
That hand molded the form of man
That hand traced the currents of the oceans
That hand held back the walls of the sea
That hand stopped the mouths of lions
That tiny hand, tightly clutching his mother’s finger
That hand would heal the sick, restore sight to the blind
That hand would bless children
That hand would feed thousands with a mouthful of food
That hand would raise the dead
That hand would feel the pain of nails
From that bleeding hand forgiveness falls like rain
That hand, extended to you, to embrace you
This is the hand of God

Merry Christmas!  May you feel the hand of God upon you during this day of celebration and with the coming of the new year.

Blessings to you,
