Promise

What must it have been like to get a scary visit?
A holy visit, yet still unsettling, full of unexpected
Things, you can say yes or no but this invitation
Plants the hope of a nation in your womb, motherhood
Is an overwhelming job in the best of circumstances
Yet here she is a young, teenage, unwed mother
Saying yes to all the possibilities, all the heartache
Unimaginable at the announcement, Mary risks
It all in  her yes, the acknowledgement of the
Crazy wild love of God come down in the unexpected.
All we have to do is say yes, to having our heart
Broke, our life turned upside down, to trust in
The unimaginable and share it with the world.
