“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37

I can’t do this.

I am doing this.

Both. And.

This is where we live,

where Mary meets us.

And we all cry out together

to the angel and the blinding light,

“How can this be?”

Then comes the reply,

“The spirit of God, my friend,

the spirit of God.”

And we all cry out together,

and we all cry.

Both. And.
