Below is an Advent reflection I felt inspired
to share with you. The idea for this poem was placed into my heart by the Holy
Spirit as I prepared for Confession on 7 December. It grew to the point that
while standing in line, I had to start jotting down lines so that I wouldn't
forget them. I've seldom ever had such a strong inspiration from the Holy
Spirit. It is provided to you for use in whatever way you see fit for the
benefit of souls. Thanks and God Bless!
There's a gift I wish to give this year
like no Christmas before;
and though I'll freely give it
I think I'll gain much more
Each day I'll get an empty box
a big box it must be;
And fill it with those things I know
that God wants most from me
Each impure thought or lustful glance,
as soon as it may start;
I'll place inside the empty box
instead of in my heart
Each jealousy or word of hate or anger
that may rise;
Goes in the box, and in its stead
I'll try to empathize.
That selfishness that causes me to look
past other needs;
I'll pack away with other sins,
replaced, I pray, with deeds.
Whenever I may wish that day for more
than I've been given;
I'll thank my God for all I have
and ask more grace for Heaven.
And at days end I'll seal the box
and pray that if God willed.
He would forgive my faults that day,
that left it far from filled.
And with the box sealed tightly shut,
and placed under the tree
I'll start anew tomorrow,
to make a better me.
Until on Christmas eve I seal
the final box at last;
the tree space filled with packages
from all my efforts past.
Prepared at last on Christmas day,
my gift planned from the start;
To gaze upon God's newborn son
with a pure and thankful heart.
