Everything came together
Morning wake up,
Getting Luke out the door
For his bus,
Which means bath, dressing, brushing teeth, breakfast, belts, helmet, braces…
Everyone else waltzed around me, no tripping or bumping into one another.
The lights on the tree were warm.
The music playing vintage carols on my iPad was just right.
I found peace in my morning Advent.
And at bedtime too, I felt my Savior with me.
So how can today be
just a little out of sync from yesterday?
What is the missing ingredient?
Is it that my iPad didn’t connect to the internet?
Silenced my morning Advent,
And Cheerful season songs.
Could it be the electronic panel going haywire on my washing machine?
My plans for laundry halted…
Could it be the push/pull to do my mundane chores or decorate with more reminders of
That one day
to the next
is not where I should put my Faith.
The recipe might change again tomorrow.
Calm might be elusive.
But, find PEACE in the word
Brought by that long ago
Host of Angels!
” Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth, peace to men on
whom His favor rests.” Luke 2:10-14
