Alphabet Advent: Q is for Quiet

Pin It

Q is for Quiet

I struggled to find a word for Q.
Quiet seemed to be the only word that fit.

The quiet moments when Mary realized the enormous
privilege and responsibility
that she had just said "yes" to.

The quiet moments when Joseph brought
home a bride to protect
but not touch.

The quiet of the long journey
when time seemed to drag on forever.

The quiet of the night,
after the baby had been born,
and rested in his mother's arms.

The quiet awe of the shepherds
when they worshiped the baby.
The quiet after the commotion of visitors,
as Mary pondered them all in her heart.

The quiet of the heart that is focused on Jesus,
and his free gift of salvation.
