Best wishes for a Wonderful (restful!) Christmas celebration and holiday season. May you be blessed with safe travel and the making of memories to warm the heart during the rest of this Winter season. :-)
The driving snow is like a mist,
I cannot see but quite –
The trees across the backyard,
Are finely dressed in white.
December’s gift, sight to behold,
I cannot get it right –
Am I gladsome, am I not?
As gusts whisk flakes in flight…
I then inspect from inside out,
My heart has reached its height –
The beauty-gift I love the most -
The arms of friends held tight.
So then I utter “Thank you”
To the One who offers bright;
Truth and beauty to absorb
And Self throughout the night.
