Readings: Psalm 27; Malachi 2:10 – 3:1; Luke 1:5-17
Planets spin us back in time
where stars wink silently on a non descript stable,
dank and cold.
Reality before perception:
as on Christmas cards all glitter and light,
holding the “breath of heaven” within her being
cannot fathom that same breath
rippling into time and space
thousands of years henceforth.
All creation waits.
And in one great exhalation
that the promise still holds.
That as the shepherds, we too will look in awe,
songs of wonder and praise
filling our ears and hearts.
In the land of the living
the very same stars will illuminate
The Word fulfilled,
God among us,
In the peace and beauty of holiness.
I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13
