Happy Holidays

For one lone month each year, we gladly pause
For those we love. for those who are in need,
To play the role of dear, old Santa Claus
And lovely story of the Christ Child, read.

And as the bells ring out gaily, anew
In happy music heard around the Earth
And with great joy that through the ages grew,
Rejoicing in the loving Savior's birth.

With modesty, I add my little verse,
Just one small voice to make a wish for you,
As others gather and with love rehearse,
"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" too.

Thank God for all the holiday treasure,
He's given to us without strict measure

Ring size 7

Congratulations on a very well written poem, Joyce!! The several beautiful messages you wrapped up so nicely and concisely in your sonnet are your holiday gift to us, I believe! :) If you have time, please read my entry, "Holiday Happiness," as it contains some similar thoughts. Many, many blessings to you, my friend! :) Bartholomew
