The Birth of Jesus the Messiah
Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
and married Mary
The Magi dreamed
and went home by another way
and named his son John
Joseph's dreams were invaded by angels
warning him to flee to safety
and telling him when it was safe to return
A story built on dreams
that revealed the will of God.
And what of your dreams?
Are they incredible too?
Are they inhabited by angels
revealing their message of love
encouraging the embracing of hope?
There is nothing that is out of reach
when our dreams become a vision
of the indescribable love of God.
