Holiday Wishes 2010



The glow of candles, lights, and fireplaces,
Expanding our joy in holiday spaces,
They kindle warmth, desire, and cheer,
Reminding us all of what we hold dear.

We live, we love, we try to remember,
What is it that charms us about December?
Is it the sunshine giving rebirth
Or is it the snow that blankets the earth?

Children will play often quite oblivious
To all the hubbub, even the frivolous.
Whatever your seasonal activities bring,
Let peace, love, and joy cause your souls to sing.
