"Quarantine Copple Christmas"
A poem by Laurie-Ann Copple
Glory to God in the highest
And peace to all the peoples
We thank you Lord for your birth
Your death and resurrection
Christmas isn’t about snow
Or about all the trimmings
When we celebrate you
Summer or winter, we’re winning
It’s all about trust; Joseph and Mary
Trusted you for their path
Here in covid times, we do too
It’s a very different Christmas!
You carry us in transition
From South Africa back to Canada
You are Lord in both places.
Thank you Lord for blessing us through kindness
Through friends, through family
We are not alone, we never were
Even in quarantine, you are here.
You are the centre of Christmas
You are the wings that will get us ‘home.’
We trust you for the next season, of 2022
You will give us strength to help
Frail family members
We hoped to see in December
