I love this poem by Norman Wesley Brooks, and the sentiment is exactly how I feel. My hopes for all my family and friends, as well as YOU my readers is that each of you live every day as it were Christmas!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a healthy and prosperous New Year!
Let Every Day Be Christmas
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord’s plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!
