The Season of Lights/Hanukkah

I am joining with katemotaung.com for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Season

It’s a season for life for Israel
It’s the season of lights,
The season of joy,
The season of rededication

Israel was called
For a holy purpose,
Distinct and set apart
Before all the nations

G-d made a people
To bring Himself
And His Kingdom nigh

His holy writ will not be denied
His promises will never be forgotten
His covenant will never ever be forsaken
He cannot deny Himself
He will not forget His lovingkindness

Ezekiel 37 describes this life
Life into the dry bones;
One slow step at a time
G-d himself breathes life
Into the dry bones

The most poignant reality
Coming for Israel
Resurrection
Life
In every single dimension
Words containing substance
Words spoken over Israel
Containing hope for her
Forever
