we are drawn to people circled. when we gather in shared focus—-it is magnetic.
sometimes the center viewed is:
harm-full. one releasing self-control to hurt another. injury. broken.
purpose-full. rescue in the happening. care of the one anothers. teaching towards truth.
joy-full. reunion of soldier and family. dance that music demands. gifting.
what and who we choose to circle draws others in.
in circling christmas i choose:
the coming together.
hurried must do.
the beauty and brightness.
anxious is it enough.
the at home in traditions.
counted to closely gits.
the greatest giver.
suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising god and saying,
“glory to god in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
when the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “let’s go to bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the lord has told us about.”
Luke 2:13-15 (NIV)
