Merry Christmas to YOU


My hope and my prayer for each of you is that you have a fantastic and blessed Christmas this year.  I will close with this interesting poem about Christmas.

Let Me Not Keep Christmas  
by Linda Felver

Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal, keep Christmas.

Christmas kept is liable to mold.
 

Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exuberant armfuls.
 

Let me share, dance, live Christmas unpretentiously, merrily, responsibly with overflowing hands, tireless steps and sparkling eyes.
 

Christmas given away will stay fresh—even until it comes again.

+++++++++
Many Blessings to you and yours...

 Big Hugs,
