retracing their steps

the footsteps of this couple
anointed for a blessing
giving a life, the One
who was to come
given to their protection
entrusted by the creator
the savior of the world
in this child’s womb

retracing their steps
humble, this mystery
how God came to earth
to save us from our fall
with this couple
in their earthly journey
from her hometown to his
at the time of his birth
