Wednesday Riff: With Us

Right here, right now,
Known or unknown,
Sensed or not,
Alongside us
In the dark and the light,
The day and the night,
Above and below,
Behind and ahead,
In the here and the now.
Understanding and
Intensely interested,
In the normal and the ordinary,
With us in life’s walking and running,
Sitting, standing and resting,
Reflected in the smiles
Of friends and strangers.
The Immanuel One,
Christmas Hope come down,
Stepping into the dust and grit
Of another year,
God with us,
Not afraid of the dark,
Or the despair and the dirt,
Close to us,
Deeply committed,
Forever alive.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
