How bright the Christmas lights
Oh, I enjoy every single one
Little elves are sparkling
So busy and on the run
Santa Claus and sleigh
Dazzling in the dark
A beautiful assortment
At homes or in the park
Brilliance across the water
Little soldier standing guard
Tree tall and magnificent
Such activity in the yards
There is stillness in the air
With the icy winter weather
Amidst the sparkling lights
At Christmas as we gather
So take that holiday stroll
Or drive around your town
There is happiness everywhere
Christmas joy is spread around!

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…! ! !

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.
– Denise Poole
Love is here with its spark
Touching the hours divine
Christmas lights in the dark
On the roadway now shine
Bring in love and bring peace
Incarnate the thoughts true
Give your heart and unleash
Everything with kindness too
Hope is in each heart tonight
With harmony to every men
Come and share a candle light
When darkness is in the glen
– Peter S Quinn
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……
– Geoff Warden
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
