Christmas Eve

Silver bells ring faintly through the wintry wooded land from shiny horse-drawn sleighs gliding across powdered snow. I cuddle up to a toasty fire with hot cocoa warming tired hands as the Christmas tree soothes me with an iridescent glow, and gaily decorated presents lie neatly adorned with bows. On Christmas Eve, the children dream of Santa and sugary treats. Reindeer food has been nibbled; cookies and milk are on the mantle. My thoughts drift to ornery relatives and hopeful cooking feats, until I see his profile beneath the mistletoe holding a candle. The Lord's blessings float through me like the Christmas music of Handel. July 22, 2012 For a Christmas In July!! Christmas Magic Contest (Gail Doyle)

    Congratulations on your win, Rhonda. Handel's "The Messiah" is a favorite of mine (and I love the story of how it got written). Love, Suzette

    This is beautiful Rhonda. I think Christmas in July was a terrific idea and with poems like this - it succeeds in bringing joy to us in the middle of summer. Thanks for sharing.
