This is a season for reaching out.
Making quality time for loved ones, family and friends.
Offering gifts, help and encouragement.
Creating space to meet with our Creator-God.
Seeking to engage our finite minds and lives with the Infinite One ~ our Lord Jesus Christ.
Preparing hearts and homes to receive Him anew.
As the Advent season of watching and waiting, reaching out and receiving draws to its glorious ending, I reach out to you with gratitude for all God has done in my life this year.
I am particularly thankful for the many new friendships I have made in the writing community especially.
Thank you for being here and sharing the poetic journey with me. I have really appreciated your company and comments.
And as I take a brief break to recharge my batteries and enjoy having time to read and reflect more, I pray that you may you have a truly blessed and hope-filled Happy Christmas!
There’s a reaching out
across time and eternity
as Love comes down
to embrace our fallen humanity
and spill the fragrance, sweet savour
of God’s holy favour
There’s a whisper, a shout,
an angelic proclamation
as the Prince of Peace
invades every tribe and nation
with the news of His birth
echoing throughout earth
There’s a longing, a sigh,
in hearts heavy and weary
for a way to break free
from days hard and dreary,
with scattered hopes and dreams
failed plans and schemes
There’s a wonder, a cry
and recognition dawning
that this baby, Christ-child
brings us a resurrection morning
of forgiveness, mercy and healing
seen in God’s grace all revealing
