Today I saw it all so clear

That which I’ve denied so long

Before, I gave you all the doubt

But now I know you are false

You don’t see me

As your special one

I deserve better than

To remain unseen

Am I a microscopic dot on your brain

That you barely recognize

Why do you want me around

Just to make you feel you have someone

As the one you swore to love, I say you deceive yourself


But me, no longer.

Merry Christmas !

But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;  for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'”

—Luke 2:10-11

This morning before sunrise, while walking Sugarpants, I was blessed to see Venus, shining big and bright. So big that I thought maybe it was Jupiter but I investigated and—no. The night sky has always held my fascination and I could look at it for hours, if in a comfy position. It speaks to me: soul, mind and spirit. I’m not all that knowledgeable about the facts but enjoy the wonders for the response they evoke in me. Normally I might fight feeling small but in the case of viewing the heavens, it is actually comforting. In my opinion, it is a time when the word Awesome is actually used appropriately; it truly is awe-inspiring!!

I hope I see Venus again soon.
