Seasonal magic

Four candles are now lit
in our advent ring
Just waiting for the Christ candle
to complete the circle
The longest night
has come and gone
we hurtle on
toward Christmas
When we get there
will it matter
if we've forgotten something?
Will our celebration
be diminished?
And when Christmas day is over
will things be any different?
Or will we simply breathe a sigh
and immediately begin
to whip ourselves up into a frenzy
to get to the end of the year?
Celebrating Christmas
whether well prepared
or weary
provides for us
amazing possibility.
One day in the year
cannot change the world.
But hearts prepared
to welcome
and embrace
the Son of God
and share that Christmas Spirit
will go a long way
to bringing magic
into the season
