“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).  Matt 1:23

God with us.
From Zion to earth
and birth to death,
the eternal to the temporal,
Holiness to sin.
in my daily work
and rest,
my highs
and lows,
the good and bad.
when we wage war
and quarrel.
Personally and communally.
When we help or hinder.
When a child lives
or dies.
When nations and empires
and fall.
on my journey
by day or
by life,
my eyes open
or closed.
My life open or closed.
“I will never leave you or fosake you.”
will I leave you or forget you?
will we stumble
with our eyes shut to the light?
“Are you there?”
“God with us” 
You are!
