Joyous Wishes on a Blessed Day!

on December 25, 2012

From Awakenings and catnipoflife

The Soul of Christmas


Full-bodied aromas
Permeate the nose
Along busy sidewalks
Where everything glows


Joyous melodies
Vibrate all through the air
Amidst hustle ’n’ bustle
Of shoppers everywhere


Bundled from head to toe
Out despite the weather
Wassailing and caroling
Bring us all together


Balsam, spruce and fir
Boughs that glisten and gleam
Bells, balls and tinsel
Add magic to the scene


Sights, sounds, aromatic scents
Surround all the fuss
Bringing out the childish ways
In each and every one of us


A time of giving
Welcomes heartfelt returns
Tears, smiles and laughter
Just what the spirit yearns


Great joy, new beginnings
The soul of Christmas brings
Happy birthday, Jesus
The holy church bell rings


“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things-not the great occasions-give off the greatest glow of happiness.”

—Bob Hope (British-born American comedian & actor, 1903–2003)
