Jesus asleep, warm, fed.
Safe for now in a temporary shelter.
Utterly dependent and cared for.
Cradled in love.
Mother Mary, very, very tired.
It was a long journey from Nazareth.
Happy this part is over.
Ponders: what does this child face ?
Joseph: grateful I can look after them.
Mother and child: I love them.
Surprising the turns our life has taken.
They have drawn goodness from me.
And us: dependent, questioning, grateful.
God’s way becomes the human way.
Where you find yourself at,
from there you must begin.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph: pray for us, now.
