December 21st Advent Devotional

December 21st

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”

Luke 2:13-14

In December Darkness

The whole world waits in December darkness

for a glimpse of the Light of God. Even those who snarl “Humbug!” and chase away the carolers

have been seen looking toward the skies.

The one who declared he never would forgive

has forgiven, and those who left home

have returned, and even wars are halted,

if briefly, as the whole world looks starward. In the December darkness we peer from our windows

watching for an angel with rainbow wings

to announce the Hope of the World.

Written by Ann Weems in Kneeling In Bethlehem
