Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.
I love this time of year.
It is a season full of hopeful expectation.
A time of joyful laugher, mixed with shedding of tears.
It is a season where faith, hope and love abound.
A time of trial, triumph and often tragedy.
It is a season of renewed dreams, restored lives and romance.
A time of warming hands by the fire, and shoveling snow.
It is a season of sweets, smells and delight.
A time of decking the halls, and ringing of bells.
In this season of Christmas, may you look up and see the sign and the wonder of Christ.
Birthed in heaven, yet brought forth in a marvelous display of power.
Laid low in a manager, this babe, this wonder.
May you look for the sign of His coming,
and see the wonder of His creation set before you.
