Basking in the Christmas Spirit

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

The glow of the lights on an early

Christmas morn lighting up a joy

filled young face still full of wonder.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

The lights glow out the window

coloring the grey plumed birds

feasting messily at our feeders.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Nativity reminds us of the ultimate

gift, the King born as humble as He

could be, born to serve, born to save.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Releasing expectations, settling for

joy and bliss, food and fun and Lego,

and books and naps. Always naps.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

The early rising boy, joy filled face

lit by the colored lights, as he finds

his wonder once again under the tree.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Mocha in hand, slippers on feet, as

we watch the unwrapping as the

snail bread warms and we rest.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Heads bowed in prayer, thankful

and joy filled, knowing that we can

keep this spirit all year long. We can!

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Wishing joy across the miles and

across the fields to those we love

and glasses raised to those gone.

 

Basking in the spirit of Christmas.

Laughing at movies, playing games,

naps sprawled wherever they find us

and waking to the lights of the tree.
