Housing the Holy: A Room with a View (Love)
He has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
and lifted up the lowly;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.” ~ Luke 1:52-55
It's all here. Hope. Peace. Joy. Love.
Israel had hoped for a long time. Hoped for peace. Hoped for joy.
Hoped for God's love, but had no idea what it would look like.
But Mary knew.
Knew that God's love offered hope to those who didn't usually have it.
Knew that those who kept more than they needed, would have to loosen their grip.
Knew that love would be in a form no one expected.
Knew that God was a God who kept promises.
Because love keeps promises.
Love come down! Amen
