I will be sharing some of the poems in my Advent devotional book I presented to my congregation. This is the first poem and it sets the mood.

 

 
On the way home from Grandma’s house
a big thanksgiving meal consumed
over the river and through the woods
their back seat positions assumed.
 
Tim and Susie started to talk
about Christmas which was coming soon
and then they broke into singing
their most favorite Christmas tune.
 
It was time to start decorating
the house with the tree and the lights
and because Santa was watching
they’d have to stop having their fights
 
“When can we go get a tree?” they asked
their mother who was in the front seat
“and make those good Christmas cookies
and candies that are so very sweet?”
 
“We’ll do it soon,” mother smiled and said
“but we need to know what we’re doing,
I want you to know what things mean
much more than just for the viewing.”
 
Dad said there would be a lesson
for each of the things they would do
and they’d know much more about Christmas
before preparations were through.
