Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Celebration

Those of you who have joined in my 12 Days of Christmas the last few years, know that I try to spread the true meaning of Christmas on the final day.

No crafts or cookies, although they are nice
but just a little bit of reminding...
that CHRISTmas is about Christ!

The Magic of Christmas

"Joy to the World," the carolers sang out
As last minute shoppers scurried about,
Desperately seeking that one special gift
That would give Christmas morning a magical lift.

An old man was standing, listening to the song,
Midst all the madness of the bustling throng,
In a shaky, hoarse voice he began to join in
Singing the words of the famous old hymn.

One by one people stopped with their madness
To join with the old man for a moment of gladness.
By the time the carolers finished with singing the song,
The whole throng was united as they all sang along.

As if by magic from out of the sky
Church bells rang out from a chapel near by...
Proclaiming the Birth of Jesus and
the Glory of God on High.

And when it was over, the people turned to each other,
and shared tidings of good will as they greeted one another.

You see, that magical lift the shoppers sought for so long,
Was not in the buying or scurrying along.
That magical gift so desperately sought
Was the Spirit of Christmas—which could never be bought.

One of my dearest blessings is the love and support you have all shown Chris and I during this rough time.  I have been brought to tears many times reading your comments and emails.  
I thank you all for your kindness and prayers,
Wish you a Very Blessed and Merry Christmas!

Wendy & Chris
