This Year




(Pondering Hebrews 9:11 and 9:14)*

This year, the browning

of falling leaves brightens more,

the lawn, pumpkin-spiced.


This year, dependence

feels more freeing in this trust.

Regrets dry, grace drops.


This year, shedding limbs

are more harbingers of good

than of avalanche.


This year, Advent shines,

dispensing hope around sin,

dancing through shadows.


If this year's foliage

reminds of the good things here,

how much more, Jesus!


* 11 When Christ came as high priest of the
good things that are already here
, he
went through the greater and more
perfect tabernacle that is not man-made,
that is to say, not a part of this creation.

14 How much more, then, will the blood of
, who through the eternal Spirit
offered himself unblemished to God,
cleanse our consciences from acts that
lead to death, so that we may serve the
living God
