As this year comes to a close, perhaps your heart feels a mixture of things, just as mine does. With the start of a new year, I’m often praying God will help me live more authentically, selflessly, and courageously. I offer up this poem, hoping 2016 will be a year in which you let your life speak (thank you, Parker Palmer) the unique, God-given voice within.

I have missed writing weekly prayers. With many heavy things going on in life, as well as some other writing projects to which I’m tending, the blog’s received less attention. But I want to share a short piece of poetry as we continue our Advent journey. Jesus is coming with hope, promise, peace, and guidance. Into your life. Into the world. Oh, Praise Him.
