God’s Word says, “All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure” — 1 John 3:3

Before Christ,
we reckon backward.
Just as the years
count down to one,
the measure of our life
gets smaller and smaller
until at last life comes to naught.

but, anno Domini,
in the year of the Lord,
what need have we for BC ways?
We and the calendar repent;
the years get fuller and fuller,
adding and adding more,
until at last life overflows in Him.
