Pastor’s Pondering – December 11, 2019

Advent began overcast
Cold rain falling down
And I was unsure how
To summon courage
For waiting,
Or joy for sharing.
But sometimes
A wan smile begets
A sliver of courage.
And sometimes
A pinch of courage
Invites a grin.
And some dark nights
A prayer, simply put
Brings forth the presence
Of someone new,
In me, in you,
In this fearsome world,
Even now.
