Immanuel

I am having fun scrapping some of the poems I've written over the years. I did this a few years ago for an Advent art event with our church . . . hand calligraphed. This was much easier, way more fun, and I think the images really make a difference. Been wanting to do something with this collection of Elisha's for a while now and it just hit me today. I might use this as a Christmas card this year. I used SilentNight Collection, along with the associated styles. TFL.

 

Text reads:

 

God.

Almighty God.

God with us.

Immanuel

 

Love carried in a virgin’s womb,

The giver of life destined for a borrowed tomb.

Perfection wrapped in the rags of humanity

And nestled under the shadow of the cross

Immanuel

 

The prince of peace

Invading the peace of the empire,

The one who never sleeps

Resting in a manger.

Immanuel

 

Holy uncreated One

Born to His creation,

God stepping out of eternity

and into time.

Immanuel

 

Here. Now. Present

Among us.

With us.

God.

Immanuel

Wow - what a beautiful poem! And the images really do bring it to life. I think it would make a great card.
