1st Sunday in Advent

Matthew 24:37-44

Be ready
for the Son of Man to come
be ready
for you do not know
and the small child looked into my eyes
and said she saw butterflies
and the clouds were beautiful
and the wind made here giggle
God made a wonder place
She knew
She could see God’s hand at work
And loved God’s creation
In her smile was God’s love
Her words also
Filled those who heard
With the Holy Wonder of God’s love
When did I lose that???
When did I move from the innocence
Of being ready
In God’s love
To getting ready
Wrapped up in me???
Christ is coming
Live once again in the readiness
Of now.
