Second Thursday of Advent

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
    we were like those who dream.”  Psalm 126:1

we dream
of hope outrunning
despair to life’s finish line;
of peace tearing down walls
to build bridges to life;
of grace feeding those
whose souls are shriveled
by taunts of fear and anger,
and we awaken to find
standing at the foot
of our beds, our clothes
and shoes laid out for us,
as you whisper,
‘join me as we make
dreams come true’
