A Delightful Celebration

Twinkle, twinkle, Christmas light,
You brighten the Christmas tree.
I love to watch your playful dance
As you entertain me.
Tinsel and glitter, how you glisten.
I love to watch you shine.
You make the tree come alive.
The pleasure is all mine.
Balls and bows, and ornaments,
Garland to wrap around.
A beautiful star to top the tree,
And presents to be found.
A delightful way to celebrate
The life of Jesus Christ.
The Savior born to be a King.
Our Lamb of Sacrifice.

Inspiration: our 2019 Christmas tree.

Home for the Holidays

Clean the desk, shut the door.
I’m going home to share
The holidays with family,
Where everyone will care.

I’m tired of fighting crowds to shop,
And waiting for a cab.
I want to see the Christmas tree,
And lights it will have.

I’ll hug my mother and my pops,
And let my spirit flow.
I’ll even grab my fiance
Underneath the mistletoe.

So off to the town of love,
One that I have missed.
I’m going home for the holidays
To share another Christmas.
