The shepherds have returned

To wooly flocks on the hill.

The inn keeper now wishes

He could his small inn fill.

Mary, post-delivery,

Is no longer pregnant, ill.

The world’s most famous morning now is past.

 

The wise men have returned

To their studies in the East.

Herod has completed his

Contemplated blood “feast.”

Joseph, Family in Egypt,

Are “visitors” at least.

Jesus is a growing “toddler” at last. 

 

And you, friend, have returned

To living glad, or forlorn,

Returned to shops and streets

Filled with scurry and loud horn.

Hold to His redeeming love, hold it fast!  –eab, 1/5/08

   -Basil Miller, George Washington Carver, (Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing, 1943), 139.

 

“It is not we little men who do the work but it is our blessed Creator working through us…other people can have this power, if they only believe.  The secret lies” – touching his Bible which was on his desk – “right here, in the promises of God.  They are real, but so few people believe them to be real.”

   -Basil Miller, George Washington Carver, (Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing, 1943), 161.
