Today at noon I have a powerful impression of how, in obscurity over 2,000 years ago, occurred one of the two most life-altering, world-changing moments.
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit...
"Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to your word."...
And the Word was made flesh,
And dwelt among us.
The other, which we will celebrate in three weeks, though it began quite publicly and stretched over three days, also culminated in obscurity.
Thank you, Lord, for hidden treasures and secret places.
