And my heart sings.
Lists are everywhere; mustn't over look a thing.
The food must be the best, the tastiest.
The house must be shining and spit-spot.
It must be warm and inviting.
But today, this day especially set apart as the Lord's other thoughts come to mind.
Today's desire ~
To tidy up the worldly trinkets and comforts
that clutter the soul's living room floor.
More than anything, when the clan gathers,
I want a quiet heart, an uncluttered heart,
a heart that sees and savors,
a heart whose joy and love is understood and known,
even without words.
