Magic Of Snow At Christmas

Posted on Updated on

The beautiful reflection……,
Of the moon and the stars…..,
On the snow covered fields….,
Is a wonder all its own…..,
The falling silky flakes…..,
Of white create……,
An unexplainable vision…..,
That brings joy to the viewer….,
God has blessed us……,
With the Magic Of Christmas Snow…! ! !

Christmas Begins With Christ

Posted on Updated on

A velvet sky, a starry night,
Blankets of snow, twinkles of light.
Sounds of music fill the air,
Gifts of love, wrapped in care.
Love ones gather from far and near,
To celebrate this time of year.
Behold each one face to face,
In all their wonder, all their grace.
Bubbles of laughter, echoes of joy,
All began with one small boy.
Born in a manger, lying in hay,
Changed the world that first Christmas day.
Ever so humble, this king was He,
Came to save the world, to set us free.
Oh, how He loves us, each precious one,
Jesus lived and died, God’s only son.
So however you celebrate this ‘Christmas’ season,
Never, never forget, ‘Christ’ is the reason.

A Christmas Gift

Posted on Updated on

In presence of the multitude,
I have shown barring no gift,
For what hath I worth thy child……

In glance of many gifts bestowen,
Frankensence, Muir, Silver, Gold,
For I posses nothing worth Lord……

In tater clothes I bow Mother Mary,
And confess the birth of virgin son,
Yet words fall short of glory be…..

As thy man Joseph smiles upon,
Watching o’er thy babe Jesus,
I surrender in humilitance unto my lack…..

In moment chance hold thy hand,
of the child that taketh my place,
For this tiny babe shall wash me clean…..

In this childs eyes my saving grace,
In his fathers hand thy mercy proclaims……

Christmas Time

Posted on Updated on

As the children prepare for Christmas and the toys they want
It’s a joy to watch as they help put the tree up and decorate it
The ornaments that get broken and the ones from when they were small
To sit back as they decorate Christmas cookies

The little ones who are celebrating their first Christmas
To watch them roll around in the snow and make snow angels
Take them sledding and help them make snow men
As we celebrate Christmas remember this is the day our savior was born

The falling snow and the cold chill of the air
As we watch the snow fall sitting in front of the fire
Cuddling with the one you love as the fire crackles
Laughing and joking with family members

Having a snowball fight out in the snow covered yard.
Being able to get along even when you don’t like a certain person
Talking about how your life is going and listening to old Christmas stories
Sitting at your grandpas feet as he tells the Christmas story of his past

Playing hide and seek
Hiding in the hall closet which is the best spot in the house to hide
Holding the door closed so they can’t get the door open
Play along with the little ones games and imaginations

Again That Time Of Year Is Here

Again That Time of Year is Here
Again that time of year is here
When wreaths elves lights appear
The hue of Santa’s suit and sleigh
Adding color the wintry skies of gray…
Until pansies roses tulips grow
Melting all of the Season’s snow
But I like holly gifts Advent more
Than all that springtime holds in store
For it’s this I’ll tell you I so adore:
Again that time of year is here
When wreaths elves lights appear
