Midst the Hustle and Bustle

Candy canes and sugar plum fairies
sneaking kisses 'neath the mistletoe
brightly wrapped packages under the tree
sweet children’s faces all aglow.

Sounds of Christmas carols
cuddling up by the fire’s glow
the scent of pine and cinnamon
little tin soldiers all in a row.

Cookies to bake and fudge to make
pauses to think of Christmases past
inevitably letting go a heartfelt sigh
for those memories which last and last.

Midst the hustle and bustle the day comes
when in reverence we remember
it’s Our Lord’s birthday we celebrate 
on the twenty-fifth of each December.

So gather together and sing out loud and clear
Happy Birthday Lord Jesus
we rejoice in Your birth on this,
the holiest day of the year.

Hope that many will come to the birthday party and for once forget their own gratification and pray for the less fortunate.
