Most of us don’t feel too holy – Dec. 2007

Most of us don’t feel too holy

as we imagine the holy might feel.


But when everyday is Christmas

we are much more kind.

Little things are big things

and the world

is more sublime.


A door held open for a stranger

a prayer for another in need.

Eyes to see the beauty

hidden in

the tinniest seed.


When everyday is Christmas

the smallest task is filled with love.

And each mundane moment

is gift from

the heavens above.

May the Spirit of Christmas

shine in you

 and bless you

throughout the New Year!
