let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start
when u read the Word, u begin with genesis
with the Gospel, His coming was darkness nemesis

pbcc bernard lighted second advent
with ancient hail gladdening light chant
shining the Light in john 1:1-5 rant
the reason for the season God-sent

reminding us our beginning Might that was God, Word and Light
today’s service with downunder relatives was joyous delight
after dimsum, we drove to micro center site
the guys caved in on last day sale apple bite


a gladdening chorus indeed
blessed Christ-mass creed

we hymn the Father, we hymn the Son
we hymn the Spirit, wholly Divine
no one more worthy of songs to be sung
to the Giver of Life, all glory is Thine

last sunday we cruised
to another adventus
time to reflect
how we survived 2009 intact

it was breathless for me
the gift of time did flee with glee
raced to connect with past, pause for cause
i pray it earned heavenly applause

2009 was launched with mother etherized to snowy dew
economy gone to dogs, a retrospection cue
a rush to wisely use time gift
to touch lives and life to lift

culminating in “ramrom raps” book
my nib ripped and shook
after trip to europe, africa and asia – just one look, that’s all it took
thank God for His advent, we can be thankful for His mercy to be off the hook

a blessed season to all
all creatures small and tall
no matter how humanly high, short of glory we fall

’tis the season to realize our folly
rejoice in Him and be forever jolly

it’s been said that God’s presence
is more important than presents

christmas is essence
to review “is life futile” in His absence?
