Devoiding the Void
A child is born.
The mother stood in awe
The father swelled with pride
Something precious birthed from
crannies invisible to the naked eye
Family rejoices, neighbors coos at
the fragile being lying in the cradle
Many exclaimed at the beauty of this
folds of flesh
The beginning of a new life!
Angels’ delight is mixed with trepidation
at another born with a choice between
good and evil
Devils scoff at this being with an untapped
capacity above that of angels
Made a little lower than God, the placement

The spirit of man yearns for
communion with God
Nothing in this clime would bring
satisfaction, only His abiding presence
People wonder how Christians are
able to retain cheerfulness amidst
problems, peace amidst chaos
Waking up with joy bursting forth
from their hearts each morning!
A deep conviction of better things
Peace unattached to something
Their satisfaction is from being
“one” with God
He fills up that vacuum with His
Come home to the Father today!
