The Baby She Bore


The baby she bore
was the fruit of God’s promise,
not a fairy tale.

  1. True, it’s not a fairy tale. It’s good to be reminded 🙂

    Dropping by from MYM

  2. mary and her infant son are so bright and strong against this simple white wall.
    the vines of life, so quick to embrace them.
    may we all find comfort in the birth of peace.

  3. Jesus so real and Mary so motherly. That is perfection of the real meaning of love. Blessings to you and yours for a Merry Christmas.

  4. Beautiful!

    Happy Blue Monday.

  13. I realize it is not a fairy tale. In fact, I am often amazed at the fact that it has been around for 2000 years. No faith needed to believe Jesus was born of the Mother Mary.
    And I see more tile. You have hit the motehr lode of tiled pieces in your posts this past week. I love them all.


  14. Your post today is especially pretty. It definitely reminds me or those 12 years with the nuns. Your haiku is wonderful, too. It it so true. genie

  20. We just keep following one another around the game board these days. I finally got back to posting on Rednesday – used to do it each week when my Buttons for Baga blog was so active – but then got involved with the other photography blogs and left the crafting and other goodies. When I saw your name and Tina’s name I just had to say HI again. Hope you are having a good week. The troops are so restless that my suspension room is full all day each day til 3:05 next Tuesday. Hope I make it. genie
