Advent: a silly moment

Lord forgive me
For entering
Into the
Advent/Christmas Debate

((I admit it I talked about advent vs Christmas hymns))

I was tired
And forgot that such opinions
Stir up much debate & advice
When really
I was just sharing things
In my context.

But I said they were true—. because they are for me

However really I trust
That everyone
Is doing their best
for their own circumstances

And that we are all waiting—or not For Christmas, and that somehow

Christ will arrive exactly on time,

No matter what songs we sing or when we decorate the tree

Because that’s the Christmas miracle—and I’m so thankful for that

As I admittedly pray this Advent prayer.
(Sometimes even before Thanksgiving).
