sweet surprise
the week is near
wrapping presents
arrange the cheer
the eve and morn
to celebrate
a Savior born
colored glass
meatballs, quiche
santa songs
noel pastiche
sweep the earth
and set the birch
root beer bottles
go to church
ponder these
within thy heart


In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. – John 14:2

Inspired by my mother’s wisdom on anticipation (it’s the fountain of youth!) and expectation (He came, He comes, He’s coming).
