That Night!

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 “still.” We would love to have you join us.

Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem.

No room for them in the inn. 

In the stillness of the night 

Surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes 

Mary births her son. 

His cries pierce the silence 

And awaken a deaf world. 

Shepherds hear the news.

Three wise men come 

Bearing gifts 

Of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

A newborn king


God with us

I wonder what it would’ve been like to have been there. 

Stars twinkling in the sky

It must have been so still.

Until his cries

Alerted the world 

A newborn king 

For all. 

Come, oh come, Emmanuel!

  1. I can picture you and Luna sitting in the stillness last night writing this. You were probably sipping on some decaf tea brewed in your new beautiful kitchen and being still. By the way, Kate said STILL in November 2014 also.
