Three Christmases

For the last three years, I have written a poem to include in my Christmas cards. Each was inspired by a traditional carol.

Joy to the world,
Spread love throughout!
Embrace diversity!
Let gentleness surround you,
Encourage all around you:
Enlightening each soul;
Brightening every life;
Creating- CREATING!
A world of joy!

Heavenly Peace

Silent night, fateful night;
Each must choose: the dark or the light?
Human minds are drawn both ways;
Fear or love: how will you spend your days?
Wisely choose your path through life,
But ask your heart which path is right.

~So you may~

Dream in Heavenly peace
And sleep in Heavenly peace.

Our Angels Sing

“Hark!” earth’s children all proclaim,
Hear our voices, heal our pain!
You who’ve taught us God’s design
Live His Word- don’t redefine!
Love our neighbors, love our home.
Love each child as if your own.
Love is the answer and the key
For earth’s children to be free!

Honoring the memory of the 20 children and 6 adults who were
murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on 12/12/2012.
