Joy of the Season By: Tarina Lovegrove Writer
Christmas is almost here
There is joy for the season
Happiness fills our hearts
for a special kind of reason.
We celebrate the birth
of our Lord and Savior
People seem to cheer up
You feel it with their behavior.
Smiles seem to go further
down each and every aisle
Traffic tends not to be so harsh
as you travel every mile.
Shoppers are quite busy
as they roam from store to store
The buzz is exciting
when we look for gifts galore.
Little Susie’s tears
seem to be less unnerving
She quickly adjusts her attitude
in hopes of presents she’ll be deserving.
Little Tommy makes out his list
and presents it to Mom and Dad
He cleans his room, does his chores
for there are presents to be had.
Hubby completes his honey-do list
and you spend hours in the kitchen
Sister calls with her best recipes
because she wants to pitch in.
Kindness fills our souls
as we give to those who need more,
by helping to prepare, for the winter chill
Good old Jack Frost has in store.
All of this is very grand
as we plan for the big day
Still yet we must remember
to bow our heads and pray.
So as you prepare for the season
Remember to do your part
for Christmas is about Jesus
And the love instilled within your heart.
From our family to yours
we wish you peace the whole year through
May you find success and happiness
in everything you do.
May all your dreams be fulfilled
We wish this in every way
With a season full of love for you
and a very Merry Christmas Day!
