Solstice Carol

Reminiscences of Christmas
Under the palest winter sky
Painted in a watercolor sunset
Upon the clouds of another time

As the years have come together
And wrought our storied past
Through loss and love reliving
The shadows our memories now cast

But the spirit and the essence
Of the coming hallowed day
Can never be diminished
But in a million stars displayed

Through a score and two thousand
And a thousand more, perhaps
The beauty is in the telling
Of that which shall ever last

So to this reflective evening
And to this holiest of days
We submit all our deepest dreaming
To the light of Christmas day

Knowing that this is forever
Held in a sacred place
Deep within our heart of hearts
Where eternity is embraced

Christmas list

My Grand-daughter asked me again this year, what I wanted for Christmas, and I realized I didn’t really get my wish list filled last Christmas. Looks like Santa’s falling down on the job…No, it’s not world peace, but it’s probably nearly as intangible. Maybe that’s the problem.

My Christmas List

1.To have the courage to do what God wants me to, without thinking twice.

2. To never feel ashamed again.

3. To accomplish something would be nice. …

4. To see the sick healed.

5. To live life with meaning.

6. To see wholeness in those I know and love.

7. And never again face regret.

So…what’s on your list?
