    An unexpected tree is up,
    awash in purple lights,
    enchanting me and Service Pup
    through cancer’s sleepless nights.
    How strange a thing of plastic
    can make weary heart sing,
    and let a joy so drastic
    arise on golden wing,
    but this dear tree speaks of a truth
    that beauty is of God,
    and through the night is shining proof
    that though Creation’s flawed
    by the stain of earthly sin,
    His Love, at end, is going to win.

    Merry Christmas to you, Steve, and to the whole Laube family, and to everyone in this blog community. You mean so much to me, and to Barb.

    I stand in awe of God…His power and majesty
    whereby his Choice and the sound of his Voice
    birthed the World and Space and Time:
    His mind over matter; His will over evil; His life over death.

    This God who is and was and is to come,
    so perfect in his being that
    angels adore him,
    devils fear and quake before Him,
    and people cannot look upon his brightness.

    I stand in awe of this God
    who was so enraged at death
    That he did something about it so personal and painful:
    He gave his life so I need not taste his wrath.

    I stand in awe of this God
    who, knowing we would forget his kindnesses and his words,
    still counted us worthy of his time and devotion
    to save some of the human race.

    If a ship is going down, and you have a way
    to save some of the people,
    You should not be dissed for not saving all of them–
    particularly if the people won’t take the life boat
    when it comes by for them many more times than once.

    I stand in awe of this God who inhabits the praise of his people.
    And, of whom, if proper praise is not given,
    even the rock in great multitudes would life their voices
    in Hallelujahs
    and the trees of the fields would clap their hands
    in recognition of their maker.

    This God who is and was and is to come
    from eternity past through infinity future
    is Love so amazing, so Divine that
    I fall down before him, love and adore him,
    and offer my life, my soul, my all. Dec. 2021
