Christmas began with the First Day on Dec. 25, so as we Christians continue to celebrate it with this tradition, LET MAKE CHRISTMAS GREAT AGAIN!
A Wordle Challenge below asks the use of at least 10 of the words suggested to create a story or poem. To see the words or join in on the fun click here.
My creation is in the form of Etheree Poetry below; enjoy and Merry Christmas!
Christ is present —
Decorate your tree
The Herald of angels
Signal the holiday signs;
Santa, mistletoe, elves, raindeers —
Everyone here tastes of our pudding
Gifts in your stocking because of Christmas
He always was, is the answer.
That boggles my mind, however when we consider that God has not ever existed in what we know as “Time,” because in fact, God caused “Time.” He brought it into existence before doing so, “Time” did not exist.
Time is described by words such as movement, change, motion.
Outside of “Time” is deathlessness, infiniteness, perpetuity.
Since we living humans have only experienced living in “Time,” it is difficult or impossible for most of us even to imagine living without “Time” when considering that God always was it seems like a fairy tale. When He created “Time” that was THE BEGINNING! God had to exist to cause this rhythm a cycle of rotation (movement). He existed before that period outside of “Time.” He existed in timelessness, infiniteness where there was NO BEGINNING; therefore HE ALWAYS WAS!

My One Liner is MERRY CHRISTMAS, enjoy my computer card below.
This post today encouraged by Weekly Writing Challenge composed by me, below.
My inspiration wrote in Haibun poetry with Haiku at the end. The rich symbolism of words, especially when one looks deeply into Biblical teachings and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The challenge this week by “Weekly Writing” calls for 5 prompt words to be used, prompt words below are underlined.
Consider when the Divine King, Jesus was born, and placed in a manger. A spot where food is set to feed animals. This rough trough became His first bed. “And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger.” [Luke 2:12] “SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND.”
Now recognize this and grow in grace; the symbolism of this is profound!
Many time the faithful being described as His sheep. Continue to read …
“He said to him the third time: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he had said to him the third time: Lovest thou me? And he said to him: Lord, thou knowest all things: thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Feed my sheep.” [John 21:17]
As it has always been stated in the glowing Catechism of the Catholic church, whenever a priest has appropriately been ordained a priest in the old rite of ordination without changes, it has been given to him from God above the power to consecrate the bread and wine into the True Body and True Blood of Jesus Christ. “If any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world.”[John 6:52] Not dead flesh but the Living Flesh of Jesus Christ, also known as the Eucharist.
Laid in a manger
Food for our souls — as promised
God can do all things
Rich symbolism becomes this manger where the newborn Baby Jesus laid on that first Christmas. “And they came with haste, and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.” [Luke 2:16] That first Christmas so long ago, meaning Christ Mass. The word for Christmas in late Old English is Cristes Maesse, the Mass of Christ, first found in 1038, and Cristes-messe, in 1131.
My Christmas Gift from God!
Married … 1961
Now he is gone, his name was Dennis!
A MEMORY afraid to forget
Some die soft and others die-hard.
You left me with a heart scarred.
His Will was to call you home
His Will left me all alone.
Your words to me were bravely spoken
Today I understand the words foretoken.
“It’s Gods Will,” you said over and over.
“Please lend me a prayer,” and moreover;
“What did our priest just say to me?”
Words I just couldn’t foresee.
“Our children will now care for you,”
He knew they would follow through.
Now that it’s been six long years
What I do best are shedding tears.
What could be more ordinary than waking up and opening our eyes?
Eyes; complicated are its workings.
Could it be magic?
To simplify the magic; light enters; the light bends directly to the retina and triggers it by a message to our brain through the optic nerve. The signals enter the brain via the thalamus, which separates the incoming information into two parts, one containing color and detail, and the other movement and contrast. The messages then move to the back of the brain, and into the visual cortex. The cortex is laid out so that it mirrors the end of the retina, allowing a detailed image to be reconstructed.
This type of magic must be the supernatural kind, and some still say there is no God.

#SoCS Dec. 8/18 … anything musical.
I must confess I just can’t keep rule number 1 which states (Your post must be a stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.) Especially this one below: Editing and planning was a must! I am still a beginner at poetry, but I love it and love the challenges to create.
