Compassion and courage for the times you need it.

As the last minutes of Christmas 2011 tick by, I want to share one final poem for the season. Perhaps we can ponder these questions as we head into the new year.

Christmas Wish

I’d like to find my path again—
shall I follow a star?

I’d like to stand in awe again—
should I crouch on a hill?
could I kneel in a stall?

I need to touch my soul again—
might I find a new way
to remember, to pray?

I yearn to wend my way back home—
although I know

Love and peace to all of you. Lois
