Barriers, Part One
Just four more nights, and
Christmas will be here.
Remove those barriers that stand between
us and a full appreciation of Christmas.
Take away our grown-up
inability to marvel.
Replace it with a child-like
willingness to wonder.
Let us lay aside our need to ask
how it happened and to pick up our
ability to celebrate that it happened.
And fill us with joy over
why it happened . . .
