L'Engle: no room

Sunday, December 23, 2018
    Advent IV
    “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.
    —Luke 1:38 (NIV)
This is the irrational season
Where love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason
There’d have been no room for the child.
    ... Madeleine L’Engle (1918-2007), “After Annuciation”, from Weather of the Heart, Wheaton, Ill.: Harold Shaw Publications, 1978, 2001, p. 69 (see the book)
    See also Luke 1:38; Isa. 7:14; Luke 1:41-42,46-55
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make room in my heart for those You love.
