The Essense: Keeping Holiness

Mural of the Birth of Christ - Wikipedia by David Bjorgen
A painting of John the Baptist Church at the River Jordan

Sometimes I forget
 That Christmas is not
About giving love
But about 
Being Love--

Or just being.
Being present
Hold a hand;
Listen to a voice
Carrying warmth, 
Even timelessness;
Kiss a revered cheek;
Nuzzle an arthritic dog;
Lean to hug a hurting woman
As she grieves;
Cradle an all-knowing cat,
All the while 

The Baby Cache.

Honoring the sick, the elderly,
The lonely, the hurting,
The vulnerable
