drink offering

2 Samuel 23:15-17 

 

Though I am not a king—

One of the mighty Three

came

risking

slaughter,

 

broke through the enemy

to bring

for me

a cup of water

drawn from

 

Bethlehem.








Isabel Chenot’s work has appeared in Spirit Fire Review, Assisi, Avocet,

Indiana Voice Journal, and Blue Unicorn, among other journals. Her books

include West of Moonlight, East of Dawn (her retelling of an old fairy tale)

and The Joseph Tree. Both are available on Amazon, and The Joseph Tree

is also available through Wiseblood Books.
