I Wonder



I wonder if the shepherds understood the message they were told,

I wonder if the scribes and priests understood all the writing of long ago.

I wonder if Joseph understood that his bride didn't make him a fool,

I wonder if King Herod understood the new King brought a different kind of rule,

I wonder if the Innkeeper understood the young couple and took pity on their tale,

I wonder if Herod’s soldiers understood the orders as they murdered the newborn males.

I wonder if the Wise Men understood the child fulfilled the mystery that was hidden,

I wonder if Mary understood the destiny of the baby God to her had given.

I wonder if this Christmas I understand the impact of the child King,

I wonder if I understand the inheritance that his birth now brings.
