A Waiting Poem.

'advent calendar'

He will come like last leaf's fall.
One night when the November wind
has flayed the trees to bone, and earth
wakes choking on the mould,
the soft shroud's folding.

He will come like frost.
One morning when the shrinking earth
opens on mist, to find itself
arrested in the net
of alien, sword-set beauty.

He will come like dark.
One evening when the bursting red
December sun draws up the sheet
and penny-masks its eye to yield
the star-snowed fields of sky.

He will come, will come,
will come like crying in the night,
like blood, like breaking,
as the earth writhes to toss him free.
He will come like child.
Rowan Williams

I have been a bit absent of late...

I would apologize but its a really good thing!

I have a JOB!

Here, praise the lord!!

and I fell in love with my best friend!

 (I swore I would never sink to this level of cheese but there we go..!!)

So this is just a quick check in to share what's bringing me joy at the moment (aside from the aforementioned obviously!!) 

This is an incredible design project done by a guy from my old church Rich Wells, he took it upon himself to make one piece of biblical artwork a day for 100 days and this is what happened...

A Sample:
