Pastor’s Pondering – December 26, 2018

There are some cold dark days
In December when I understand
That faithfulness is not enough-
That night will come no matter
What I have done that day,
That red ribbon and sparking lights
Cannot undo a thing that did not go well.

Well, there is no second verse-
I go on, trying to perfect a manner
That cannot succeed except in its own diligence,
Praying that my practice
May be a small candle in the long night,
Knowing that my stubbornness is a small shadow
Of true faithfulness,
Hoping for nothing
Other than the grace of God-
Which, after all,
Is all we truly have.
