CHRISTMAS LIGHT REDUX

By Jonathan Caswell

Driving home in early morning

I spy a familiar sight,

That sets my spirit soaring….

Houses lit with Christmas Light.

I come by too late to see them all…

Still lit are only a few,

But these few bring hope to my slippery slope

When I’m feeling tired or blue.

Though darkness envelops the highway

While traveling wee morning hours,

The Christmas Light shining brightly

Has wondrous encouraging powers.

Like pilgrims Joseph and Mary

We have to walk step by step,

Taking by faith that the Lord will provide…

At which He has proven adept.

The light of glory shone

Out from a stable bare,

The Light that shone so long ago

Breathed Christmas into the air.

The Christmas lights I’m seeing

Could be red, green, blue, yellow or white…

Like a candle in the window of a stable

They remind me of that…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
