Pastor’s Pondering 12/23/2020

‘Tis NOT Christmas morning,

But it is for the cats,

Who are frolicking

Rollicking all over the floor,

Around the tree they just knocked over.

‘Tis NOT Christmas morning,

But it is at the diner

Where a struggling waitress

Gets a $100 tip!

‘Tis NOT Christmas morning,

But it is at Walmart

Where a stranger has paid

For Grandma’s lay-away gifts.

‘Tis NOT Christmas morning,

But it is on the square

Where a poster for justice

Has been lit with twinkling lights.

‘Tis NOT Christmas morning,

But it might as well be,

Because I feel like love,

I rejoice like shepherds

Keeping watch in their fields.
