Should It Be?

The tree is standing …for all to see
The lights and bulbs are twinkling
You look and smile and walk away
You’re not impressed …you say
Why bother …to stand it there
Why work so hard …for us to stare
It’s in my head/heart to stay
His love will never …go away
I’m thinking …your words are true
Christmas lights, the bulbs, the tree
You could care less …should it be?
What’s in the heart … mind can’t loose
Jesus Christ …the world’s GOOD NEWS!

Christmas Cheer

Christmas time …is coming
My heart‘s …eager …thrilled
To celebrate the birth …of Christ
To all the world … goodwill
I’ve loved Him  since my youth
To Him I gave … my heart
I pray I’m worthy of His love
And to the world …impart
No matter how my life has gone
No matter …when …I’ve strayed
He’s never walked away from me
A happy soul …He’s made!
So …to my friends and family 
I give you … Christmas cheer 
Heartfelt hugs … and kisses 
My heart to yours … all year!

Just weeks away from celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Mother loves Jesus of Nazareth, King Of The Jews, as she loves to call Him.  My prayer is to bring her smiles and have fun with her over the holidays.  The Thanksgiving dinner at the HOUSE is the 22nd of November, I’ll be there with bells on.  she loves life, I intend to help her enjoy where she is.  I do not mourn my Mother, I celebrate her life.  I write what I see, and it can be depressing, but I look at it another way, it’s just where she is and I cope, better sometimes than others to be sure.   I know this writing is a bit early, but I wish Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to all!

Merry Christmas – Happy 2013

Have a Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas
Have a Hap Hap Hap Hap Happy Holiday
Words   SUNG   … many times
Have a Christmas in the good ole fashioned way.

May you be surrounded by loving friends and family
May the New Year find you full of  joy and  bliss
May your days be fun  …  jovial
May your presence be … never missed.

Love and Joy to all
Thanks for reading my words
We’ll continue in the New Year
New fun … adventures … heard!

Ho Ho Ho

Ho Ho Ho!
Who wouldn’t go
Up on the chimney
With Santa…You Know?

You bought, or made…gifts
I do believe
While hubbies
To work …would leave!

You baked …goodies
Santa would nibble
Milk and cookies
Left on the table!

You made Christmas time
Cheerful and bright
For me and my siblings
Your heart shone the light!

So …I’m honored
To say
Merry Christmas
… Your way!

Our mother always gave us her best every Christmas. Her heart was always in the right place. As I remember, even in the hardest of times, her homemaking skills and her cheerful heart filled our cups!

The Christmas Bulb

Our Tree

Our Christmas Tree

You’re like a Christmas bulb
Bright when lights are shining
But when lights go down
Dark and gloomy all around.

You’re in the center of the tree
Enjoying christmas cheer
When other bulbs fall or break
You hold tight … persevere.

Like a bulb, you’re fragile
It could happen to you too
You hold tight…the tree of life
The inner strength…in you!
