Christmas is Coming fast!

Hello, faithful followers of our blog, if there be any followers at
all. Is your Christmas shopping done? Have you baked cookies and
made fudge or divinity? Does anyone make divinity any more? I used
to love that heavenly melt-in-your-mouth flavor of...sugar. Now I'm
trying to be gluten free, sugar free, carb free, lactose free and fat
free. It's not working out very well. What IS working out, is the
third and final edit on our book. What a gift it will be if we can
turn it in before the beginning of 2013! And so none of us forget the
real GIFT of Christmas, I'll share a poem I wrote for our church
Advent booklet of meditations.

The Buoyancy of Grace

Come again to us this Advent
As You did so long ago
In Your river of forgiveness
Let Your ocean ever flow.

For in these rubber tubes we float
Held up so we don't sink
Your lavish love surrounding us
Grace enough to drink.

With never a fear of drowning
Surrounded by this ring
Protected for all Eternity
Privileged children of The King.

Blessed Christmas to you all.
