Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

Welcome to our World

The inn was out of rooms,
And every single occupant
Was too selfish
To give up their room to a woman
About to give birth,
So you were born
In a stable—
Welcome to our world…

The people were too busy
To watch the stars,
So they ran from here to there,
Wrapped up in their calendars,
Unaware that God Himself
Has come to their little town—
Welcome to our world…

The king was jealous
Of a little boy,
So he killed thousands of beloved sons
To save his pride,
Leaving a wilderness
Of ungrace—
Welcome to our world…

But you have come
To change the tide;
God stooped down
To this broken world,
Becoming a man
Wrapped up in caring for others,
Bringing grace
To this wilderness:
Welcome to our world!
