“My true love gave to me:

Huge favor done!

POI* bingeing,

11 hours’ sleep,

dishwasher loaded,

and my own blog domain name.”

Christmas Poetry

I just read a most moving poem of Thomas Merton’s that I highly recommend (incidentally posted by a blogger I highly recommend<g>):

Continued Christmas blessings to all!

“On the Third Day of Christmas…”

“My true love gave to me:

11 hours sleep,

dishwasher loaded, and

my own blog domain name.”

“On the Second Day of Christmas…”

“My true love gave to me:

dishwasher loaded, and

my own blog domain name.”

“On the First Day of Christmas…”

“My true love gave to me:

my own blog domain name!”

Merry Christmas, everyone, and I pray you’ve had a blessed day celebrating the arrival of the Christ Child. Now let’s keep on celebrating for the remainder of the 12 Days of Christmas! 🙂

Into the Darkest Hour

It was a time like this,
War & tumult of war,
a horror in the air.
Hungry yawned the abyss—
and yet there came the star
and the child most wonderfully there.

It was time like this
of fear & lust for power,
license & greed and blight—
and yet the Prince of bliss
came into the darkest hour
in quiet & silent light.

And in a time like this
how celebrate his birth
when all things fall apart?
Ah! Wonderful it is
with no room on the earth
the stable is our heart.

Madeleine L’Engle
