A Friendly Greeting

Merry Christmas to every one
Before long it’ll be gone
Though for some it is a worry
Do naught to make you sorry
Do your best and enjoy it well
Despite of where you find to dwell
Try and make not your spirit fell
Sharing giving and receiving gift
Will give the spirits a lovely lift
In the end you’ll all be blessed
So lift your glass and give a cheer
It will show how much you care
That Christ’s birth we must declare
Let’s live with Jesus on our minds
Although at times life seems unkind
Still Christ the Lord must be adored
Give to Him your thanks and praise
Again merry Christmas to every one
And many blessings in the New Year
Love the Lord and you’ll be blessed
Give some thoughts for every guest
If tread careful you’ll prevent a fall
Peace and love is my request for all
Away with sadness time for happiness
Let’s be glad and merry at Christmas
Merry Christmas, happy New Year.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
