#ADVENT – An Irrational Season of Blooming Love

On this 7th day of Advent, Virginia is contemplating blooming love (the impossible, irrational kind…)

“To the impossible: Yes!
Enter and penetrate
O Spirit. Come and bless
This hour: the star is late.
Only the absurdity of love
Can break the bonds of hate.

This is the irrational season
When love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason
There’d have been no room for the child.”

Madeleine L’Engle  (from Glimpses of Grace)

grace, peace & irrational blooms (of Love!)

    Really beautiful prose. Joseph was a loving husband who trusted and obeyed our Lord. We are so blessed that he did. Thank you Virginia. Love ❤️ Joni
