my Beloved

AD Family

You know who you are

And how much I cherish

Your friendship and faithful presence

In my life.

Merry Christmas/ Happy Hanukkah

Love always




I hung the wreath,

The mistletoe..

A little kissing

On the nose.


I hummed along

To ‘Midnight Clear’

My heart replete

With Christmas cheer.


I draped the tree

With bells and cane

The scent of pine

Left its refrain.


I placed Joseph & the Virgin

One, on either side

Of the manger with Baby Jesus

Lying swaddled deep inside.



 I paused then, to offer up

My praise and adulation

To Father GOD in heaven

For Christ and my Salvation.



I took the cookies

Hot from the oven

Recalling the jingle

Nothin’ says lovin‘


Just like the aroma

That fills the air

Around every table,

Upon every chair!


For the Spirit of Christmas

Has entered the hearts

And lit-up the eyes

Of the seniors and tots!


For where the Spirit of Christmas

Will make Himself known -

‘Tis the place where miracles happen,

It has been shown!


Yea, the Spirit of Christmas

Abiding- in-heart can astound:

For that is the place

Where true faith can be found.



I lifted my glass into the air

and thanked the LORD above

For family, friends, and miracles

..all found within His love.





Who makes us glad

with the yearly remembrance of the birth

of Thine only Son Jesus Christ,

Grant us, that as we joyfully receive Him for our Redeemer,

even so, we may with sure confidence,

behold Him when He shall come to be our Judge;

He who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Ghost,

one GOD, world without end . Amen.

My dear Rhonda,
You fill my heart with warmth and wonder.

Merry Christmas!

What wonderful scenes you bring to mind...
I love the warmth of this bright cheery Christmas poem!
And then the finale--the Spirit-filled prayer that so beautifully magnifies the grown-up, crucified, risen Christ seated in the heavenlies, and coming again!
As for the formatting, I wish I could understand how words I arrange so carefully on the AD Add Works page come out in various forms and sizes--I hope they can improve it soon.
Well, it's Christmas time -- "God bless us everyone!"

Beloved, I can't seem to get it upload correctly.. please forgive me. It's been nigh on four years since I posted!

The prayer should read: O GOD, Who makes us glad..

God bless you.
Love & Hugs, Rhonda
