ADVENTures

Mary and Joseph
in faithful anticipation,
awaited for what could not 
be imagined but was soon
to arrive.

Entrusted with the treasure 
Of God’s HOPE!
Of God’s LOVE!
Of God’s JOY!
Of God’s PEACE!

Presently, we are
waiting and anticipating 
what we’ve been promised.
Not knowing when, yet sensing 
a deep stirring.

Of God’s ENDURING HOPE!
Of God’s ENDLESS LOVE!
Of God’s ETERNAL JOY!
Of God’s EVERLASTING PEACE!

During the first Advent,
What was stirred? Who stirred?
Did anyone sense a change other than the prophets, shepherds, and astrologers?
Did the artists? I bet they did.

For artists are the tip of the spear.
Their vision pierces the darkness with ideas expressed
in colorful hues, sound frequencies, and movements.

Today, the world is like a kaleidoscope,
oscillating between chaos and order 
as we wait, like Mary and Joseph, anticipating the arrival

Of God’s HOPE!
Of God’s LOVE!
Of God’s JOY!
Of God’s PEACE!
In the return of Jesus!

~ Rhonda Logan Bailey, poet and artist
