Lessons and Carols

It is the season for Lessons and Carols.

It is the season of expectancy - and pregnancy - luring us into our deepest core.

It is the season for Silence and journeying inward.

It is the season that invites us - as Emily Dickinson once wrote -

"To dwell in possibility."

I awaken over and over in the night with a choir singing in my soul:

"A voice cries out -
Prepare the way of the Lord,
Make straight in the desert,
A highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up
And every mountain made low.
The Glory of the Lord shall be revealed..."

The music coaxes me from a deep sleep and gently urges me to go deeper into my heart to prepare the way of the Lord.

(Words by LLoyd Larson)
