"Multitudes of Miracles"

A-Poem-a-Day Until Christmas...

It was miracle enough

that glorious day Jesus, the Son of God

was born to save this world from sin


That alone is deserving of

Glorias! and Hallelujahs!

from every person who is grateful

for the miracle’s immeasurable worth


but there were more, so many more—

like the string of prophecies

recorded in the Old Testament

and fulfilled in the New

about Bethlehem, a virgin and a Branch

from the line of David, and


For unto us a Child is born

Unto us a Son is given…


and there were angelic appearances

and announcements

to Zacharias and Mary and Joseph

even to shepherds reclining in a field


Angels even told

Mary and Joseph to name

the newborn Jesus/Yeshua

which means, “The Lord Saves”


There was the revelation

by the Spirit to grey-haired Elizabeth

pregnant with John the Baptizer

(another marvelous miracle!)

that filled the old woman with astonishment—

A very special baby was nestled

in Virgin Mary’s womb!


Then of course there was

the timing of the calling for a census

that brought Mary and Joseph

to Bethlehem, at exactly the right time

and to exactly the place

where the prophet, Micah, foretold

the wondrous birth would occur


and being this was a baby boy

to open the womb

Jesus was immediately declared—

“Holy to the Lord”


Oh! Let us not forget

the amazing star of wonder

that beckoned magi from far off

and led those gift bearers

to the very doorstep

of the Son of God


or that when Mary and Joseph

presented Baby Jesus in the Temple

it was while old Simeon

held Him tenderly in his arms

that the Lord revealed

he was actually cradling

the promised Messiah—


A light of revelation to the Gentiles

and the glory of the people of Israel


Miracles, miracles, multitudes of miracles!

Wonder upon wonder to believe

and celebrate with joy at Christmastime

and always


Glory! to God in the Highest!


Jesus, Our Blessed Savior is born!
