WARDING OFF THE BLUES

AFFIRMATION

O WINTRY SIGNS

SHORTEN DAYLIGHT AND FROSTY GROUND

LIKE WHEN JESUS WITHDREW TO THE WILDERNESS

SACRIFICES EXCAVATING THE SENSES

PRIORITIZING THE TRIALS OF LIFE

ESPECIALLY LOSING LOVED ONES

IT STIFLES BREATHING

YET, WHEN OFFERING A PRAY

ONE RECEIVES A MERCIFUL LOOK

HOPE RENEWED FOR OTHERS NO MATTER WHAT

THEN JESUS BEACONS HIS WARM SAVING LIGHT

AND THE MIND WORKS A MIRACLE

IN THIS MANNER YEA! WARDING OFF HOLIDAY BLUES!

JOYS OF DECEMBER

Affirmation

There is more to the month of December than solitude, dormancy, old age or even death.  All that is for poets to write about.  I’d rather focus on spreading good wishes, being faithful to family and friends and participating in others’ traditions for the end of year holidays.  Children love Christmas in anticipation for Santa Claus’ gifts and parents gladly accommodate their children’s’ wishes.  When I was little, I loved to polish our best shoes, place them at the front door so that the ‘Pere Noel’ would fill them with pralines and chocolate goodies.  I still can’t resist decorating indoors and out and wishing for a couple of snowy days.  This year I won’t be able to craft handmade gifts (because of my broken wrist) but I will phone and chat away sprinkling loving wishes…and stay connected with all of you, my dear friends as I  keep writing to my heart’s content.

I pray YOU enjoy yourselves and experience a happy December and Holy Merry Christmas!

your loving scribe
