Return with me to the Spirit of Giving
where Joy & Peace find their way to the living.
A place, if compared is like no other;
where if for only a Season Man turns to find Brother.
Each Spirit is touched in part from on High
as the Spirit, like snow, gently falls from the sky
and caresses the Soul for all to enjoy.
Inner Peace is the order, respite and Joy.


Take time for you family, and Friends as well.
Savor each seasonal moment, like the low clang of a bell
as its rich resonance carries over the sleepy old Town
and covers the trees before it falls to the ground.
Each dazzling display, as it lights up the night,
should remind us of Christ & His birth and the fight
to condemn Him to death without any reason.
What was the charge? Blasphemy? Treason?
We share in the Birth and of course any sorrow.
But remember that Christ lets us live for tomorrow.


May this Christmas be special as it winds its way
to you with its Blessings day after day.
And may the Spirit be found in parts of the year
where you thought it was gone, not anywhere near.
The Spirit of Christmas has enough for us all
to return year after year as we hearken the Call
of the Savior who brought himself here for a reason.
May we Honor & Bless Him this holiday season.††
