to such bittersweet longings

beginnings and endings appeal
they level waiting and anticipating

then a star shines brightest
and wise men follow their hearts
finding love swaddled in a manger

  4. Born to die.
    Bittersweat indeed. Such innocent beginnings, willing to give His life for the sins of All who are willing to believe.

    We are entering the time of anticipation of the birth.

    But He chose the most radical path - winning a much greater victory.
