He's been setting them up high---near the light.
I noticed it first when I couldn't sleep. Fumbling
for the living room lamp switch I heard a thud.
she pointed out a shape illuminating out of the
tall lamp. I smiled and said it must be an angel.
They're found near lights around our home.
But I also know how much they have to learn.
That the babe in the manger, clothed
till the day He died, will call them to hard things.
That the way of the Cross for lovers of the Christ-Child is
paved with difficulty and full of
opportunities to grow.
He left those angels to be an alien and stranger
Leaving the light
to be a light for us.
I learn so much every year.
Dear, dear little people in my home....
may this Christmas season illuminate your
understanding of the Christ-Child
even just a little more. The One in
whom even angels long to look.
Even angels long to look into these things. 1 Pt. 1.12b
