I Wish You a Blessed Christmas...

Whether you live on a broad, bustling street
And whether your house is tidy or neat
Or whether your cottage is tucked between
Earth’s quiet folds of white, gold or green
Whether your dwelling is teeny or grand
Neighbor to neighbor, I shake your hand
And wish you a Blessed Christmas

Whether we share common views or not
There are common bonds that we all have got
Of being human, of learning to know
Of love’s tender holding and hard letting go
So wherever and who ever, whether far or near
Friend to friend, I extend love’s cheer
And wish you a Blessed Christmas

From my house to yours, wherever you are
I wish you the Light of that First Christmas Star
I wish you the love of Christmas’s First-born
The hope that abides since that first Christmas morn
For we are all kindred in God’s loving care
So, brothers and sisters, wherever we are
I wish you a Blessed Christmas

Though I would rather feel and hear
And see you face to face
Instead of always meeting here
Somewhere in cyber-space
I’d like to take this time to say
I love you dearly anyway
And though we’ve never really met
Like friends and neighbors do, still, yet
I’m glad for all the times we meet
Through touch of word on cyber-street

Thank-you to each of you who visits this porch.
May God bless you with hope, joy and peace this Christmas and New Year in waiting.

 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord...Luke 2:1011
