For all the World

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “with” We would love to have you join us.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”–John 1:1

Joseph was with Mary

The angel told him

Not to be afraid.


With child

Traveled to Bethlehem

With Joseph.

There was no room

For them in the inn

So a meager manger

Was offered them.


The newborn king

The Word made flesh

Born among the straw

With animals all around

Sheep, donkeys, and so much more.

Wisemen came from afar

Bearing gifts;

Gold, frankincense and myrrh

Presents fit for royalty

Fit for a newborn king.

The star in the East

Had led them

To the manger.

Amidst the straw

With Mary and Joseph


The Word made flesh


God with us

Broke into the humanity

Of the world

Bringing hope

For all the world.

I was over at the Mudroom earlier this week and I’d love for you to come visit me there if you haven’t already stopped by.

  1. Enjoyed your poetic telling of the incarnation–God’s wonderful gift to us. Thank-you for leaving a comment on my site. My site went down suddenly–the white screen. My son helped me reload the site but I lost my post and had to post it again. So glad to have my son home for a few days.
    May you have a blessed and joyous Christmas!
