christmas time


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

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
