Hope is Reborn




















hearts broken
tears falling
dark sky and darker hearts
despair without hope for redemption

God's teardrop
lands in the soil
of a tender heart and
sprouts new life

baby suckles in the cold night
delighting angels above
eyes look to the heavens
Rejoice! Hope is reborn!

"He shall be peace." Micah 5:4a
