And To All, a Good Night

“A very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear.”

– John Lennon

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

-Isaiah 9:6

The Secret of Christmas

It’s not the glow you feel
When snow appears
It’s not the Christmas card
You’ve sent for years

Not the joyful sound
When sleigh bells ring
Or the merry songs
Children sing

The little gift you send
On Christmas day
Will not bring back the friend
You’ve turned away

So may I suggest, the secret of Christmas
It’s not the things you do
At Christmas time but the Christmas things you do
All year through
