Homespun Christmas

I love the Christmas Season.  I plan and prepare all year long.


At Christmas, all roads lead home.
~ Marjorie Holmes ~


Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a Merry Christmas.
~ Peg Bracken ~


Christmas is not just a day, an event to be observed and speedily forgotten.  It is a spirit which should permeate every part of our lives.
~ William Parks ~


WHAT IS CHRISTMAS

A home with gleaming windows
Of dancing candle light,
Glistening stars of silver
High o'er a blanket of shimmering white.

Crimson poinsettias 'mid holly and pine,
Shining balls on a tree,
Happy children's faces
Makes Christmas precious to me.

Candy canes of red and white,
Presents with satin bows,
A friendly chat with a loved one
By an amber log that glows.

A Bible on the mantle
Bright eyes of a girl and a boy
As they hear the Christmas story
Singing Christmas joys.

A tiny Babe in a manger
God's gift from heaven above,
The very reason for Christmas
Perfected through His love.
~ Ruth H. Underhill ~


THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

The Spirit of Christmas,
Is that of joy and love,
Through a tiny baby,
The gift from God above.

The Spirit of Christmas,
Is that of trust and peace,
Through the blessed Christ child,
Our wandering to cease.

The Spirit of Christmas,
Is that of purest heart,
Through outpouring of our love,
With others to impart.

The Spirit of Christmas,
Is that of sharing too,
Through gentleness and kindness,
In daily we do. 
~ Ruth H. Underhill ~


May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
~ Author Unknown ~

May you be blessed with warm cosy feelings of love, comfort and joy.

May peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through.
