It's hustle and bustle
and shopping arm muscles,
It's lights and bows
and Rudolph's nose,
It's cookies and icings
and gift-giving hiding.
It's children and family
and excitement and worry,
It's laughter and squabbles
and stories grown to fables,
(okay I know that doesn't rhyme, but just change the "a" sound)
It's open-handed joy
and love for each girl and boy.
It's mangers and cradles
and softly lit candles,
It's the soul's reason for living
and Jesus came giving,
It's forgiveness, peace and love
which shines down brightly from above.
That's why I love Christmas.
If you want to try your own "ditty", let me know in the comments when it's up on your blog and I'll put a link to you on my next post. I think I'll just continue this all December, and see what happens. :)
I'm only posting once a week through December. I'll have a house full come Christmas! Yay!
Sorry I haven't been by your blog in a bit-I will. So play along with the December Love!
"For a child has been born--for us!
the gift of a son--for us!
