Christmas 2012

Tree lights

Well here we are

Gifts all

Wrapped

Named

Under the tree

Decorations

Sparkling with lights and tinsel

The pantry is full

The fridge groaning

At my door a wreath

Welcomes

Step inside

Smell the fragrance of Christmas

Cinnamon, Cloves, Pine

Ready…

062

How does my life compare

Throughout all the Days of the Year

Are the Gifts God has given

Named one by one

Ready to share

My spirit

My mind

Well nourished

Generous

With The Living Word

Does my Life shine

With the Light

Of the Lord

Banishing darkness

Drawing others to gaze upon His beauty

Shining out like a beacon to the lost

For those seeking

Home

Answers

Is there a ready welcome at my door

Am I fragrant with the Lord

Infused

From being in His Presence

Enabling others to awaken to Him

Feeling His comfort

Am I …

Ready?

Thankfully

Ready or not

God judges my Hope

Not my perfection

May you know the Lord

Mindful of every moment with Him

In the Joy and Peace of Christmas

Every single day
