Merry Christmas Everyone!!




In Search of Christmas

I went in search of Christmas,
Left tinsel scenes behind,
In need of the true meaning
That marks our Christmastime.
I saw it in the gentle soul
Who with little means to share,
Dropped coins into a kettle
For the needy everywhere.
It shone on children's faces,
Their cheeks and hearts aglow,
As they sang of Baby Jesus
Asleep in manger low.
I heard the carolers singing
Like angels from above,
Telling of the Christ Child's birth,
God's precious gift of love.
I went in search of Christmas
Not found in tinsel lore,
But in a humble stable
With straw strewn on the floor.

 Wishing you all a Wonderful and Blessed Christmas.
May it be filled with friends, family, love and flowers.
