“My friend, the weary and worn out one:

Whoever said it’s the most wonderful time of year,

hasn’t seen your to-do list.

I know, I’m there too:

Every time I wrap another gift,

I feel like I should be outside singing carols,

looking for the Christmas wonder I lost

in a Wal-Mart aisle on Black Friday.

The carol, “Hark the Herald Angels sing”

doesn’t have the same cheer

when dishes fill the sink

and you fear–you forgot something.

 

I see you search for it too–

in piles of boxes on the floor

wrapping paper and bags of bows.

Tell me, where is the wonder

in this mess you call “Merry”?

When you look for what’s missing

and find wonder was there all along,

in the wild of your life–

so small

only a child sees.

 

Christmas wonder is something you’ve long forgotten

like a song you once knew,

like a pair of jeans that used to fit.

You lost it long ago

in the hustle and bustle

of this thing we call “growing up.”

But those who can be like a child,

They see what others don’t:

the wonder of small things.

+++

There is still time

to be like a child,

the wonder seekers,

the miracle believers,

who know this Jesus is

infant small, God of all

There, in a child’s palm—

Don’t miss the gift

not under the tree.

but on it.

If only we could see:

wonder begins through small things

when miracles break in

and make us sing.”
