Advent. Familiarity.

Christmas ornaments
surround me 
with their familiarity.

Cherished memories
shout from the tree,
nestling in my heart.

Long-established routines
remind me
of their presence and demands.

The Christmas message
Christ child coming
has become too comfortable.

Oh Lord, may I never
lose the wonder
of your audacious love.

Shock my heart, open my mind
to  see and feel
this marvel beyond understanding.

My tongue is stilled
in wonder
at this unimaginable event.
