Faith Hope and Love

It was a small gathering of
those who’d come from far and wide
with the belief of oft-spoken prophecy.

Traveling both night and day
a star in darkness to light their way.

Hopes, rising
they ignored the occasional disgruntled rumple
from Roman soldiers who wanted to provoke
and cajole, keeping their mood light

They dreamed of new beginnings
the new dawn of a new age
when a new-born would bring
with Him the greatest gift

For, it was promised that he would
teach them all how to live through
faith, hope, and love.

  1. Such a great telling of a gift that is anyone’s for the taking and given freely. This gift has changed more lives than any other and hopefully has saved more lives. But due to all the commercialization of giving material things that many get caught up in this may not be the best season that this gift is accepted.

    I read somewhere that it is better to believe and find out it is not true than to not believe and find out this story is true. Truly something to think about.

    Thanks for this gift for this weeks Theme Thursday.

    Merry Christmas.

    God bless.

  2. I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

    The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

    Despite my best efforts, the couple of chooks, arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats that I’ve drafted in just don’t cut it as replacements.

    Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus/Ashura and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!

  3. I’m not a “believer” and I never will be … but I love your words, always … always, my friend Bren. Love, cat.

  4. smiles…this is the essence of the season…and the greatest gifts that any would bring…but mostly brought by wise men…smiles. happy tt bren

  5. A gift given in love to open the door of faith leading to new hope. Wonderfully written, thank you.

  6. Beautiful retelling of the most important messages of the Christmas story. It never gets old, does it? Each year it is told anew with as much joy as every year before. Merry Christmas to YOU, Daydreamer.

  7. Sadly I don’t think many listened or listened too much and became a tad out of touch. Especailly those one percent. Who we all know we wouldn’t want to make get bent.
