~ The busy-ness of Christmas ~

Tree dressed
Groceries bought
Presents bought
Food prepared
Tables set
Present stress ...
Presents wrapped
Presents opened
Living room trashed
Living room cleaned
Travel here
Travel there
Visitors yesterday
Visitors today
Visistors tomorrow
Clean the house
Clean the house
Clean the house
Prepare more food
Another get-together
Grocercies bought
Food prepared .... and it's still going on


This sure was easier when I was a kid!

A Christmas Prayer by Robert Louis Stevenson

Loving Father, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
