2014 Bible Reading Plan for Christmas
Day 17 Reading: Luke 2:15-20
The Shepherds’ Visit
Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
– Luke 2:19
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
– Proverbs 4:23
Welcome Little One
So much has been said about you already
So much to take in
How can I hold you?
How can I hold you and all that you are?
Make by heart your baby book
There to gather all the names
There to pause and ponder
the silent snapshots
Treasuring you as you treasure me
Keeping them safe for times to come
Today’s post was made richer and clearer after reading Richard Rohr’s post, Finding God in the Depth of Silence
