Day 16, Advent

Below is a Psalm from Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim by Edward Hayes.  May it fill you with God's spirit this day.

An Advent Psalm

Awaken, my heart,
God's reign is near:
the Peaceable Kingdom
is in my hands.
If the wolf can be the guest of the lamb,
and the bear and cow be friends,
then no injury or hate can be a guest
within the kingdom of my heart.
Eden's peace and harmony will only return
when first, in my heart,
there hides no harm or ruin,
for the Peaceable Kigdom is in my hands.
Isaiah's dram became Jesus' vision:
"Come, follow me," Emmanuel's echo rings.
"Reform your life, recover Eden's peace,"
for only then will salvation appear.
For Advent's dream is the healing of Earth,
when the eagle and bear become friends,
the child and the serpent playmates.
Arise, awaken, my heart,
the Peacable Kingdom 
is in your hands.

Peace indeed.
Laurie
