rest of Luke 1listen to this!
Surprise followed surprise - Z's mouth was now open, his tongue loose, and he was talking, praising God
A deep reverential fear settled over the neighbourhood, and in all that Judean hill country people talked about nothing else. Everyone who heard about it too it to heart, wondering ...
I'd never noticed this before .. that the news of John's birth had spread so far and so deeply. Miracles do that :)
I'm not so keen on the poetry in the message (too old fashioned for that I guess - blush)
but there are some lovely expressions...
God's Sunrise will break in upon us
shining on those in darkness
those sitting in the shadow of death
Then showing us the way, one foot at a time,
down the path of peace.
oh yes - maybe i like this modern poetry after all :)
