Blessed Sunday!

Jesse Tree

Her beauty
turned the heads
of kings
but she could not
be taken in.
She was devoted to
her Abraham,
and he to her.

Nor did she chafe
to find the joke
on her
when she gave birth
at ninety years
of age.

Her laughter
just turned to delight
and she invites us
to join in
with her!

Her daughter
many centuries removed
took up her theme
of praising God
for doing the miraculous
in her,
having conceived
God’s only Son.

Lord, turn my laugh
of disbelief
into the humble laughter
of delight
at Your designs
so far
surpassing mine.
