This is a precious time of year,
People sound out greetings of good cheer.
Children's laughter fills the air,
Celebration and joy are everywhere.
The streets are decorated to announce His birth,
Cards and presents fly around the Earth.
For just a brief moment there should be peace.
Is it to much to ask that the hostilities will cease?
Families are separated by war and strife,
There is still the wanton loss of life.
My prayer this year is that hearts will be moved,
To let your love shine through .
Perhaps to set the tone for the coming days.
To let all mankind know your Christ likes ways,
I thank you for your beautiful son Jesus.
Our loving Savior for all of us.
