"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

Advent Sijo for Dave

Why the hurry? Why the rush?
Advent comes just once a year.
Waiting, fasting, expectation,
The savior draws near to us.
In human form, divinity--
And we waste it all at WalMart.

  1. Thank you for that. It prompted me to try.


    In Advent you may even see Santa kiss his reindeer
    Devotions from the Advent Book keep things in proper order
    Can you keep Baby Jesu in your heart while hearing Walmart singing?

  2. Nice... other readers are welcome to join in with poetry of their own. I'm sure a nice offering will be found at some point this Advent over on my friend Beth's blog (Endless Books.... its over there on the links to your right.)
