(The Annunciation to Joseph)
On the seventh day before Christmas, my True Love gave to me . . .
Words of Hope – for myself and the world to see.
The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph
in a dream and said,
“Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid
to take Mary your wife into your home.
For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.
She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
. . . “and they shall name him Emmanuel,
which means “God is with us.” Mt 1:18-25
That the world is falling apart.
That there is no hope.
That war and disease, hunger, hatred
and death are just ALL there is,
as the media would like us to believe,
THAT is NOT the Truth.
.The TRUTH is – that GOD IS WITH US!
Just stop a second, beloved, and say a short prayer.
Find something/anything in your life that you are thankful for,
and you’ll find that His Love and Peace will encompass you
like a warm blanket and a tender hug.
His Grace will fill us with HOPE, despite it all!
