It's coming!

Each year, at around this time, it suddenly hits me that it's coming. It varies considerably, exactly when it hits. But this year it was this morning, when David Hope was on the radio, talking about growing up in and around Wakefield Cathedral.

It's coming. This morning is when the mood first bit me. And I'm excited.

Who would think that what was needed
to transform and save the earth
might not be a plan or army,
proud in purpose, proved in worth?
Who would think, despite derision,
that a child should lead the way?
God surprises earth with heaven,
coming here on Christmas Day.
 -- John Bell (b.1949)
