How Christmas Looked This Year

 

how did Christmas look this year?

it looked like a race track

gifts beneath the tree

sugar cookies and

home renovations

 

how did Christmas look this year?

it looked like a hearth blessed

by honey, work gloves

and Christmas cards

under silent chimes

 

how did Christmas look this year?

it looked like candle light

a feast laden table

ornaments and

a hopeful dog

 

how did Christmas look this year?

it looked like smiling eyes

eager hands, and arms

sharing the warmth

of a tender hug

 

how did Christmas look this year?

it looked like an empty seat

hearts too soon broken

made whole in His

glorious manger

 

Last verse inspired by my friend John Ward

whose mother passed away Christmas Eve Day
