Merry Christmas!

With apologies to Nance (I asked for her advice & then mostly ignored it - ha!), I give you the annual Christmas poem. Blessings to you & yours!

Advent
John the Baptist cried out in the wilderness,
“Make ye straight the path of the Lord!”
Ah Lord, our paths to you are
infinite,
meandering.
We look left and right,
to neighbors or senators,
to gold gloves
and golden globes.
But it’s quite simple, really.
I’ve filled my flask
with wild honey.
There, just ahead, is a light
shining in the darkness.
I think I’ll follow it
to Bethlehem.

Dana & Mike Rhyne

  3. Merry Christmas to you, too! I always tend to send my holiday wishes at the last minute...I admire your discipline to be so early and already have 2015's wishes sent!
