I am borrowing this from the blog of a woman that I greatly admire, not become I’m lazy, but because it’s so beautiful. And, frankly, life kept me very busy lately. I’ll write this week.
Merry Christmas to you and yours! Ponder and celebrate the gift anew Emmanuel. The Incarnation. God is with us!
Good is the Flesh
by Brian Wren
Good is the flesh that the Word has become,
good is the birthing, the milk in the breast,
good is the feeding, caressing and rest,
good is the body for knowing the world,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.Good is the body for knowing the world,
sensing the sunlight, the tug of the ground,
feeling, perceiving, within and around,
good is the body, from cradle to grave,
Good is the flesh that the Word has become.
Good is the body, from cradle to grave,
Good is the pleasure of God in our flesh,
