Third Day of Christmas


   Enfolded and Embraced

In a still gray moment
in a quiet lonely place,
may God’s gentle mantle enfold you
and circle you with grace.

May Her sweet breath brush upon you
and warm your body through,
Her gracious arms encircle you
like a flower wrapped with dew.

May you truly know within
that you are God’s delight,
and She longs to hold and love you
through your deep, deep night.
