* Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of the next month and a half, I'm making a few minor changes to my schedule of posting. All posts will continue to be made daily and will consist of material that has not appeared before on this blog. However, because my time will be taken up by my final thesis defense for my Master of Church History degree and by a trip to the Holy Land, several of my ongoing series will be on hold until May.

- On Wednesdays, I'll be posting some of my original poems from my college years, and then in May my "Evangeliad" poems will resume.

- On Thursdays, my series on "How to Be Miserable in Your Christian Life" will wrap up by the end of March. That will conclude that series for now; however, if you enjoyed it, please let me know, because I may add more to it at some later point.

- And on Fridays, my "Glimpses of Grace" series will be on hiatus until May. In the meantime, it will be replaced with a serialized, unpublished novella that I wrote back in 2005, "Worth It All." Beginning in the first week of May, "Glimpses of Grace" will return, this time in the Thursday slot, and a newly-composed adventure novel will be posted on Fridays.

The Evangeliad (1:40-46)

So up went Mary to her cousin's home,
On up into Judah's high hills of stone.
And when Elizabeth had heard her voice,
The young child within her leapt for joy.

Filled with Spirit, Elizabeth proclaimed:
“Most blessed among women is your name!
And blessed as well is the child you bear!
Oh, who, who am I, that you should come here?

Yes, Mary, you—the mother of my Lord!
My baby danced at the sound of your word!
Blessed is she who held it as certain
That God would fulfill all He had spoken!”
