christmas wish

dear and holy God,
in this season of glitter
and cultural celebration
many of us torn
bewteen happy-hype without
and deep sadness within…

while outwardly
we go through all the motions
of all that the season
seems to require,
inwardly we ache
from
    people not with us
    dreams not realized
    goals not achieved
    wounds still open
    loneliness unacknowledged
    illness of loved ones
    alienations not resolved
    secrets long kept.

remind us, o God,
in these advent-days
that your visitation
was not without challenge.

reveal to us a sanctuary-stable
where you can come to us again
and make our hearts
your home.

for those of you unafraid of saying
the “C” word {Christmas},

give your address to receive a pin stating
“it’s okay to wish me a merry christmas!”

    thanQ, M squared…

    this year couldn’t get enough of jewel’s “face of love,” with harmony sung by her mother. the very idea of that beautiful chemistry makes my heart swell. look for a new post with this heartwarming duet….not just for christmas.

    love & peace,
    why
