Wife and Mother en-fleshed with God

"Meditations on the Nativity of Our Lord"
by Virginia M. Kimball | Source:

"Knowing" the Lord

"Therefore, a man leaves
his father and his mother
and cleaves to his wife,
and they become one flesh."
Genesis 2:24

Like man for wife yearning,
two completed in one,
as love in love burning:
God’s creation plan done.

Miriyam knew no man,
a seed of trust her part,
love of God with passion,
humankind’s hope, the start.

She who "bore" the Lord

"Before I formed you in the womb
I knew you, and before you were born
I consecrated you."
Jeremiah 1:5

God knew her and blessed her,
prophetess in God’s land,
faith like ours yet deeper ...
married, without a band.

Gentle mother wrapping
round life within her womb,
something like awaiting
his rebirth in the tomb.

She who is wife unwedded

"Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth shalom (one-ness)
among those whom Yahweh gives joy."
Luke 2:14

Rejoice for little things
wife-mothers do all day.
In marriage, life She brings,
One among us to stay.
Theos, God, offers love:
Deus, New creation ...
joins mother in one-ness
with Presence, poesis.
Excelsis
, from above,
Glory for all stations.

Mary, mother of life
the theopoiesis,
Mary, wife and mother,
Deo in excelsis!
