Annunciation: The Tiniest Change

"How blessed you are."

"Let it be to me as you say."

And the tiniest thing changes.

The Ancient of Days becomes youngest of all. The One who holds all time and space in his hand lives within a young woman.

The One who slew Rahab, who dragged order from chaos, who throws thunderbolts that rend trees and buildings -  becomes the child of a defeated race. The Eternal One now subject to death.

This is the balance point. The bottom of the valley, the depth of the deepest ocean. The One who separated sky from sea, floats in the sea of the womb.

The tiniest thing changes. And the world will never be the same.
