The Gift


Lighted candles in every window,
A festive wreath decked every door.
I heard a jovial, “Merry Christmas!”
From a passer-by I hadn’t seen before.

Happy children building a snowman,
Their laughter filled the chilly air.
Friendly smiles on friendly faces;
God’s love was present everywhere!

I felt a peaceful warmth within me.
With gratitude my heart did sing,
“Thank you, Father, for the Christ
     in Christmas,
And the gift of love and joy it must bring.”
