12 poems of Christmas? ["day" 11]

Sweet Holy Spirit

Thank you for leaving
unending glory
to live in my small
and often too dark
and cold heart
Thank you

that you would speak to the father
on my behalf
for helping me sense
[and your]
love for me
in dark times
for carrying me through
many of them
thank you for showing up
nightmare places
and transforming them
moments of
that passes
all understanding"
thank you for your willingness
to let Jesu
to save
a wretch
like me
thank you that in that event
blessed 3 of you]
most powerfully
that love
isn't pretty
but it's
pretty necessary
with much love
and respect
you adopted child

b.e. noll
