Isaiah 60:1

Arise, shine out, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

Winter’s hope

Winter descends on the earth
cold and bright; clouds scattered
across blue expanse of heaven,
little islands of hope awakening
moments and summer day memories
of gentle air and full hearts totally
convinced of the goodness of all that is
because every sight and scene is
filled with Love and Light from
unimaginable Source.

Late December sun promises
more than it can deliver, but it matters
not in this candlelight, gentle yet radiant
casting its circle of illumination on
these hands and this heart awakening
awareness and warmth within, knowledge
of the Light of Love which does not die
no matter how cold or long December days.

The Light of Lord, the Love who
abides mangers and this heart shines
more brightly on winter nights when
warmth feels far off and bears me into
the new day, each one truly new and favored
because the Light of Love arises within
and around and shines from radiant blue
of sky, from islands of cloud and
mysteriously in me, calming every corner
of my soul with knowledge only Love
can give, rising anew every morning.

Pr. David L. Miller
