December looms in darkness before us,

memories of so many years, gather around

trees with lights. Church and carols,

tugging at the heart.

Waiting, longing, hoping, in slow moving

change for a troubled world Oh, how we

long for more! Desperate for the ONE

whose birth long foretold, intruded-invaded

the darkness the deadness of political-

social winter. It was called Advent,

and the world waited for the birth,

of Love and Faith and Hope.

Each year, we make our way,

in the darkness of realities, with painful

sadness. We try to find Hope.

Festivities, shopping, gatherings

fill the season, while restless we,

wait for Christmas. Each year surprised

by God’s love, startled, amazed, and lost in

wonder of the ONE who lightens our darkness.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Don and Bobbi
