Prayers for Everyday

AFTER CHRISTMAS

Leave a comment

As the dust settles,
stars begin to fade,
shepherds return to their flocks,
and we clear away
the ribbons and wrapping paper,
has anything changed?
Have our hearts been renewed
in their vision of love?
Will it last for another year–
through the day to day scuffle?
Remind us to bestow gifts of love,
as you have given to us, O God,
that the earth may remember
a savior came,
and we have not forgotten.

Luke 2:20:
The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
