What can I give Him, Poor as I am? — If I were a Shepherd I would bring a lamb; If I were a Wise Man I would do my part, — Yet what I can I give Him, — Give my heart. - Christina Georgina Rossetti To my WordPress family: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May this season of light and joy be filled with peace for you and yours. May your new year be seasoned with adventure, love and contentment.

The current state of affairs in our wee little town. Happy Christmas everyone!
little frozen stars
snowflakes like little frozen stars are dancing around my backyard barren branches shiver beneath winter’s breath there is a kind of death that erases memories of fireflies and summer rain but is’t okay there are frozen stars dancing around my backyard this winter day cold and wind sweep the messy fall away cold stardust blankets the ground and delicately paints the trees and help me see that all this loss of green and flower is the rhythm of you and me for there is power in resting waiting dying to even beautiful things that may shackle our souls and find new life beneath the barren new love beneath the bitterness new warmth beneath the cold let’s dance like little frozen stars in my backyard and remember that what seems random when we feel abandoned when our hearts are unable to fathom the singing of the birds we wait in the in between and come to the Word He speaks into our stillness He speaks into our silence while little frozen stars dance in my backyard
cloudy christmas days
here’s to cloudy christmas days and windy songs weaving through the barren trees can’t sing along with the howling melodies i’d rather stay and be in this cloudy christmas day here’s to cloudy christmas days you see there’s loss and grief a friend in need the clouds are all around him now nothing makes much sense anyhow except this cloudy christmas day here’s to cloudy christmas days when the dark tree seems to be the proper choice i need to give voice to loss to mystery and the agony that stings a bit more you never know what’s in store on a cloudy christmas day so i’ll just feel this cloudy christmas day the tears say it’s ok i know Eternal Love has come and Peace and Light i am trusting through my tears in the Way the Truth the Life on this cloudy christmas day

what if today you stopped and decided to be and not just to do stillness instead of the illness of this or that can you be with yourself can you open your heart to the presence of He who made all of the stars and thought of you before your first cry before the first time you opened your eyes just close your eyes breathe He knows your name breathe He loves you just be take time to remind your mind that you are loved you are His just be

no sun today and that's ok i won't tell the clouds to go away they can stay it's a cloudrise day
dear cloudrise help me feel the sad in me and to be real and just be free to be sad pensive gray apprehensive stay here with me
there is beauty in the shadow longing in the sky questions in my soul sometimes all i know is i don't know why it's overcast and colorless and with a sigh the teacher said everything is meaningless so i just breathe just breathe
so help me wait in this pale dawn help me to see that i belong to You though the light is dim i still see Him and i will remain still quiet hopeful one day no tears one day no fear one day all will be right all will be Light until then my tears will help me welcome this cloudrise
