THE GLORIOUS IMPOSSIBLE
MADELEINE  L’ENGLE
Finally Joseph and Mary were guided to a cave where animals were lodged.  There Mary gave birth to the infant Jesus, surrounded by lowing cattle, by donkeys, and oxen.
Nearby, some shepherds were out in the fields when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared before them and the glory of the Lord shone brilliantly all around them.  They were terrified.
When the angels left and the shepherds were able to speak, they hurried to Bethlehem where they found Mary, Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger.
Find yourself a quirt spot and gaze toward the heavens.  Wallow in the little you really know about God’s creative work.  Our earth is full of Glorious Impossibilities and you, my friend, are one of them and so am I.
Thank God for the things we can’t figure out, albeit  God’s Glorious Impossibilities.
