Dear Holy Friends,
I apologize for starting my Pondering heart series two days late. I have been trying to write some new poems to go with the old ones for this season. So, in the days to come, I will do my best to post every day, even weekends, with the series of Christmas poetry. Today's is an old one to get us started.
Note: All poetry is written by me and should not be reproduced.

A Heart That Ponders
Within my mind are words and phrases
my heart holds things deep.
Memories, and joys, and problems
often I lose sleep.
My head is full of questions
many thoughts to ponder.
Mary pondered things in her heart
and that fills me with wonder.
I think of people we read about
in the life of our Lord.
I wish to chat with each of them
and write down every word.
As we start this season of love
and prepare for the Savior's birth,
I shall ponder His birth to resurrection
how in me God sees such worth.
