I pray the Lord that the good times and
treasures of the present days become
the golden memories of tomorrow.
I wish you lots of love,
joy and happiness on
this auspicious occasion of Christmas.
Don”t expect too much of Christmas Day. You can”t crowd
into it any arrears of unselfishness and kindliness that
may have accrued during the past twelve months
Even as an adult I find
it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve.
Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine,
no matter your age.
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on Earth, good will to men!
Christmas hath a darkness;
Brighter than the blazing noon;
Christmas hath a chillness
Warmer than the heat of June,
Christmas hath a beauty
Lovelier than the world can show:
for Christmas bringer Jesus,
Brought for us so low.
