Obscured in time and space, hidden
By the almost obscene simplicity of a plan.
The Gift was granted to the world and remained
Unopened. God made man, clothed in human flesh
Cradled in a lowly crèche. Just waiting for a greater day—
Revealing glimpses of a the ultimate plan.

Puzzle pieces put together, foreshadowing the
Ending of the story.

Lives changed, impacted forever, the Gift walked amongst us
Celebrating the sacred feasts. Changing lives with
A single touch. A Celebration!
Promises unfolding like a flower blooming in early spring.
Slowly, delicately revealing
The plan.

Puzzle pieces put together, foreshadowing the
Ending of the story.

Teaching and guiding, scarless hands reaching out
Bracing and anticipating the battle. Stretched wide,
The Gift opened for the world to see. Love won in that moment.
Revealing the love hidden in the deep inside. A perfect Lamb,
Given as the ultimate sacrifice. On the holiest of Feasts,
Reenacting the lamb’s sacrifice, this time for the whole world.

Puzzle pieces put together, foreshadowing the
Ending of the story.

A father took his son take a somber journey, remembering
The Sacred Words. Called to make the ultimate sacrifice
Only then to be redeemed—a perfect lamb, the Rescuer from death—
The funeral turned on its head.
A Celebration! Quick, go and see if the Messiah is
At the door. Open it up, and invite him in!

Puzzle pieces put together, finally telling
The whole story for the whole world to see.

Interesting way of presenting the topic. Clever and well done. Loved the last part of this entry.

God Bless~

This is just beautiful - in message, in mechanics, in cadence, in imagery. Lovely.

This is beautiful. The ending just took my breath away. I love the play on words of Rescuer I thought it was going to say Resurrection but released what a beautiful link the two words have.

Beautiful poetry for an awesome plan.
