Christmas to me is …

autumn

Anticipation,
Preparing,
Waiting,
This is Advent.

A seed in my heart,
Growing each day,
Hope, Joy and Peace,
Reaching out, wonderous.

Cleaning the house,
New curtains, coat of paint,
Shopping, gifts to buy,
Getting ready, celebration.

The Manger, a crib for the babe.
Mary and Joseph, the three Wise Men.
Shepherds with their flocks, Angels singing.
The Star shining, awaiting the Saviour.

The Christmas tree, tinsel and lights.
Gifts wrapped in brightly coloured papers.
Cakes being baked, candy canes of red and white.
Santa Claus or Saint Nick, kids in awe.

The feeling of Christmas in the air, I touch hope.
The herald of Christmas Carols, joy sings in my heart.
The night before Christmas, peace settles in quietness.
Christmas day, Gods’ gift to us – Jesus is born.
