Has cause for joyous celebration
You said “Yes!” and so humanity
Is the recipient of God’s salvation.

As the bearer of Almighty God’s Grace
You said “Yes!” and gave the Son
Of God to the human race.

By:     Sandra Galeotti

    I cannot help being myself, even when it is embarrassing. As a child, I was a complex individual, but aunts, uncles, grand parents, parents (and pets)  have always been the target of unexpected kisses and hugs around the dinner table, or while reading aloud some chapter of a book of my choice, or just passing . . . → Read More: The Inner Child – Oct. 12, Children’s Day in Brazil

It’s only the very strong
That can WITHSTAND repaying wrong with wrong.
There is only one human I know of,
Who besides the Saviour, this ability did show of.

In my teenage years, I had the impression
The strength of a woman was in her aggression.
Newton’s Third Law, I applied in my life exactly,
To every action I reacted sharply.

Be it applied or theo-reti-cal
The physical, the biological and the chemical
All disciplines of science give full evidence
Unmatched in magnificence, is God’s intelligence 

Research on the hosts of plants and animals
Uni-celled micro-organisms to complex celled mammals
These studies by biological scientists world-wide endorse
Such attention to detail while creating can only be God’s.
