Two Advent favorites

Let the stable still astonish/ Straw-dirt floor, dull eyes/ Dusty flanks of donkeys, oxen/ Crumbling, crooked walls/ No bed to carry that pain/ And then the child/ Rag-wrapped, laid to cry/ In a trough

Who would have chosen this?/ Who would have said, “Yes,/ Let the God of all the heavens and earth/ Be born here, in this place”?

Who but the same God/ Who stands in the darker, fouler rooms of our hearts/ And says, “Yes,/ Let the God of Heaven and Earth/ Be born here/ In this place.”

L.L. Fields

The only Advent reading I’m more excited for is this.
