Advent Women

by Mary Ellen Robertson
Muskegon, Michigan

Women preparing,
wonder on the way,
willing spirits,

Gathering women
greeting each other,
giving and preaching life,
grasping wisdom here now.

Jesus bearing women,
journeying in each birth,
justly preparing the road,
jewels to witness creation.

Spirit led women
surprising new lights,
seen by many,
successfully moving on.
