Festive Ribbon

Festive ribbon, sprawling red
Reminder of the blood once shed
By the One who bore our sin;
In manger, saw His life begin.
No wreath adorned nor sparkling tree
Could replicate this gift to me.
And yet, they point me to the Way
Of hope and faith; my guide, I pray.

Coming Home

The wind dies down
The cold abates
And God abides
My soul partakes
In His promise
Hope is new
In fallen leaf
In sunset's hue
The leaves as raindrops
Address with grace
Their autumn flat
Of residence
Finding home
Claiming home
Coming home

Fishers of Men

Like waves meeting shore
My thoughts crescendo, recede
Into His, once more
And my heart, wanton, longing
Knows it's met its match
That is grand beyond belief;
The Lord makes the catch.
