Liz's Psalm

Oh God, My God,

I sigh

I cry

I try

I fly

I come

I go


I hear

I shout

I sing

I laugh

I think

I grow

I know

I show

I hide

I give

I take

I loose

I break

I trip

I fall

at your throne and worship, and love and confess and adore you.

For all the dos and all the don'ts

all the wills and all the won'ts

all the days of my life,

You know

You give

You send

your grace so I

can live.

When is Christmas Really Over?

When the song of the angels is stilled,

When the star in the sky is gone,

When the kings and the princes are back home,

When the shepherds are back with the flocks,

Then the work of Christmas begins:

To feed the lost,

To heal those broken in spirit,

To release the oppressed,

To rebuild the nations,

To bring peace among all peoples,

To make a little music with the heart

…And to radiate the light of Christ,

Everyday, in every way, in all that we do and in all that we say.

Then the work of Christmas begins.

Let the work of Christmas begin, and let it begin in me.

Anon, but passed to me by Vanessa Stringer 24/7 SA Prayer Network. It may even be her work.
