Wishing you peace and joy for 2012 with this sight:
Around the crib nudge the donkey, the lamb, the goat
"What is this unusual feed?"
Around the crib nudge the shamed, the rejected, the blamed
"Who is this amazing grace?"
Around the abandoned disgrace
the crib fed us with the dignity of God's precious child
Around our shame, our sufferings, our fears
"Be sure not to wonder far from the crib..."*
Happy Feast of God's great love!
