Two Years Later

By: Christine LaPorte

“He has made all things beautiful in His time”. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

With temperatures in the twenties

And many with no heat,

The hearts of our family were glowing

For on Christmas we did meet.

The faces of many we vow to love most

Were adorned with sweet, joyful grins.

We were blessed to feast together

With songs and of course with “Him”.

The poinsettia leaves waving in sunlight,

Greeting each fellow with cheer.

Familiar, loved pictures hung on the walls

Saying, “we’re so glad you’re here”.

Exchanging gifts with each other

Was telling of all that we knew

of one another’s’ likes and preferences

amongst our beloved crew.

But more precious than the delicacies;

And presents wrapped with great care

Were irreplaceable memories made,

Made because God led us there.

In prior years a pandemic’s hand

Had dealt a heavy blow

So special gatherings were put on hold

With no song or mistletoe.

But in addition to receiving the greatest gift of all

Of Jesus from our Sovereign Father,

We celebrated together this Christmas

This is now our “two years later”.

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD”.
(Psalm 27:14)
