Easter Message for Single Moms

The shepherds have left;

They’ve returned to hillside and to sheep.

The Magi, too, have gone, having been warned in a dream,

as was Joseph

        who packed up his family

       and fled,

If I stay in Bethlehem,

I stay alone.

God has gone on toward Jerusalem.

                               from Kneeling in Bethlehem by Ann Weems
