A small village of no consequence

After Isaiah 9:17 and Micah 5:2

A small town,
a village of no consequence
or renown or importance,
small among the clans, but
it is chosen, perhaps
because of this,
to confound expectation.
From this village
of no repute will come
the counsellor, wonderful
the God, mighty
the Father, everlasting
the prince, of peace
the shepherd
the one, foretold,
and he will reign
not just at that time
but from that time
until the end of forever.

I love how you've expressed here how God uses the seemingly small and inconsequential people and places to make a huge point. Just beautiful, Glynn!
