Raymond A. Foss Poems

Christ-filled by Raymond A. Foss
A quick email to family, to friends,
deciding to use the phrase Christ-filled
knowing that not all would believe,
that some would question the inclusion
of that affirmation, that adjective
for Christmas, knowing that some are
not sure of the reality of the King,
of the goodness of God.

Using the words anyway, because I believe
that I want to share that bit of hope,
that language of promise, what we long for
a loving relationship with our brother
our savior, our God incarnate, now sitting
at the right hand of God, the Creator
waiting now for his appointed hour
to return and reap, to claim us for himself
to be our Advocate on the final day
when we will go home.

So I use the words, of faith, of the reason
we celebrate Christmas, not merely a
winter holiday; but the moment of grace
the gift of birth, the choice to live as we do
so long ago, in Bethlehem, in Eqypt,
in Nazareth, in service
