Mary’s Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,

her secret yet to show,

and everywhere that Mary went

her little lamb did grow.

The man she was betrothed to

wanted a way out

and when people saw her on the street,

they took a different route.

 

The life of Mary’s little lamb

was threatened from the start

but Mary trusted what the angel said

and treasured his words in her heart.

 

Her beloved did not leave her

even when they had to flee,

even when they had to sleep in mud

among livestock as refugees.

 

When Mary had her little lamb,

she shattered current Rule.

A wicked monarch’s power was

no match for her infant sans royal jewels.

 

But will the kingdom, power and glory

birthed that day in Mary’s lamb

be a match for those that tremble in

a cloudy-eyed, star-splanged land?

 

If you want to help Syrian refugees, this is one place to start.

Wow! Stunningly beautiful and poignant as we draw near to advent. Jesus is still so hard to follow sometimes…I guess we don’t like crosses much (unless they are covered in gold and hang from our necks…somehow I don’t think that’s what is meant by taking up our cross). I guess following Jesus is always counter-cultural, even in a Christian land. Well done.

    “Following Jesus is always counter-cultural, even in a Christian land.” Isn’t that the truth? Jesus’ kingdom is not of this world so instead of trying to make our current structures and governments “more Christian,” perhaps we should focus more on being Christ to whatever world we find ourselves in. Easier said than done, of course, but hanging a cross around our necks probably isn’t sufficient. 🙂 Anyway, thanks for your kind words, friend.
