Stockings….

A simple tree… dim lights…glistening and dancing… as saphire…casting warm shadows…. the silence of the night… the peace and promise…. The tassled heads of these that lie sleeping… dreaming…. wishing I could be wherever they are at this moment, but they are unreachably in a place where angels sing.. and I must wait… til morn, when I can only imagine what they’ve seen by their sparkling eyes. 

In a place…before the very existence of the world… they were there… molded carefully… and cared for by the very hands of God… I remain attentive… searching…listening…. to what else may await  me there….what He holds in his hands for me…for us. 

… the stockings are full… full of promise…  and blessing…. and I’ll wrap my arms around this family… and consider all I am…. all I have. 

Consider the lights….the smell of pine…sacred ground… tassled hair and bright, beautiful faces…. the muffled and often unrecognizable sound of  peace… the whisper of God… the gift of this moment…. the very full stockings…
