day 97

"No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar, but on the lampstand so that those who enter may see the light;"  Luke 11:33

when we would
box you up
      and store you
      in the basement
   with the tree, lights,
   and ornaments, may
we learn to sit
with you at the window
      in the living room,
   your soul glowing as
you wait for
the prodigals to
      come home.
