I was the angel chosen
the one with God
in her womb.
warm with wonder
yet no Fra Angelico will ever paint
last Tuesday at my kitchen table
I was the angel
chosen to greet
another highly favoured one.
God is in her womb
and she kissed me
when she left.
Advent Reflection Questions:
- What “Mary” have you been chosen to greet this week?
- What angel has seen God in you?

Love Mischief for the World
A retired teacher I know reads to children at an elementary school nearby. She’s loving it and so are the children.
What love mischief are you and God doing to care for the earth? Let me know and I will include it in an upcoming post.
