Coffee for Your Heart – Heaven Came Down

By Susie Teramura


Bustling mall

Decorated to

The hilt,

Santa in

His jolly red



Visiting with


Hearing their

Deepest desires,

Leaning his ear

Into what they

Really want.


Then from

On the other

Side of the

Open space

A single voice

Sings out,

A carol,


And then

Voices like angels

Fill the room

Trained choir

Singing praises

To You,

The chords and harmonies

Blend and resonate,

Filling the crowed mall

With glory,


But it is the faces

I remember most,

Startled shoppers

Stop and look on,


And slowly,

They soften

In all shapes

And sizes

Reflecting the

Same thing,


The wonder

The want,

The hope

That it’s true.


That there truly

Is a savior,

To fix our

Broken hearts

And lives.

To fix

The cracked up



Someone to

Save the day,

Do the impossible,

Make sense of it all,


Hope that

The child

Born that

Starry Night

Was a gift

With our

Names on it,


A rescuer

A God,

Only good,

Only true,

Only right.


A few eyes water,

The busy quiets

To music

That sings a

Different message,

A hope message,


A redeemer

Has come

And meets



In busy malls,

And messy lives,


And that

God ‘s listening,

Leaning close,

Hearing our hearts

Deepest Desire,


Seeing through

The outer

Perfume sprayed


To the

Deep inside

Place where

The real begins,



Love and

Light and



And then

It happens,

Right near

The end,

As more and

More voices rise,

Heaven comes down

And touches souls,

Changes lives


God showing up,


Amongst us



Glory in

the highest

God with us

Peace for all.


Luke 2:13-14

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
 and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

  1. Oh, I wish I had been in the mall when this happened — just what we all need to hear in the busyness —– I love the picture, too
