The weekly Five Minute Friday word prompt for this week is “rush.”
This time of year is rush, rush, rush for so many. Yet Advent is all about slowing down and savoring the moment. It’s about remembering what this season is all about.
Yesterday my sister and I savored the season. I was able to slow down and not worry about where God is calling me next. I went to a friends baby shower. We went to Frozen Two. Then we went to our local parks light show topped off with a peppermint hot cocoa blizzard from Dairy Queen.
Slow and steady
Until the manger.
Christmas lights aglow
Kittens cozy under the tree
Cinnamon tea in hand
I read the story
Wait, watch and wonder
An infant born to Mary
His cries piercing the dark
God with us
Oh come let us adore him!
What a lovely reminder to savor the season and to worship our Savior.

I love your poem. Great description of Advent.
Beautiful poem, Tara! I’m glad you’re making the time to wait in peace.
I ask You, Lord, for grace and peace,
and strength to here remain,
and for a sort of ease
while circling the drain.
I ask You, Lord, that You might send
a message or a sign,
to offer comfort, ere the end,
that the will I wrought was Thine.
I ask You, Lord, to hold me tight,
for the best that I could do
was driven by a distant Light,
an offering to You.
I ask You, Lord, if it’s all the same
to You, that You recall my name.
Loving your poetry!
