Merry Christmas

First, my very favorite short poem. By Ron Padgett.


I will sleep
in my little cup.

This poem always makes me happy. It sounds so cozy, doesn't it? Sleeping in a little cup where no one will bother you and no problems will be able to fit in there with you. You'll be all curled up and sleeping and oblivious.

We wish you many moments like this in 2010. Peacefulness. Being at rest. Far, far from despair.

We also wish you a very Merry Christmas, wherever you are.

May God's richest blessings flow down upon you and bring you to a new, wondrous place within yourself.

    E., I love Ron Padgett too! Gotta get his books out and read them again.

    He's insane.

    Wonderful poem. But at this time of year, I can't help but marvel at God's plan for saving us all. Israel was expecting a conquering Messiah - The One who would usher in the kingdom in one fell swoop and right all wrongs with military might and righteous judgment. A conquering king long awaited by the prophets of old.

    But God had other plans. He sent us a baby.

    Amazing. Merry Christmas to all.

    It IS amazing. I watched "The Nativity Story" the other night (and made Scott watch it too) :).

    It was great. A true illustration of what it must've been like. See it. The Australian girl from "Whale Rider" plays Mary.
