Tis the Season for Love and Caring

 Tis The season for Love and Caring 

Tis The season for Love and Caring
And sending a gift or two
To share the Joy of Life around
For that is what we do

So light your candles and don your tree
Whatever your heart's content
Just celebrate this winter time
Compassion’s what is meant

To new beginnings and joyful ends
Reflecting on the past
Keep only what is good for you
And your life will last

Look to the heavens and follow the star
Peace comes from above
Then share the Light with those around
It leads you to such Love

Be thankful for what's given to you
Sometimes we may not know
What blessings hide within the things
That life to us bestow

So take this time of promises true
Listen and then live
Receive with humble  gratitude
And then go out and give

Be it snowflakes or sunshine you have
The season is complete
When we spread God's Light around
With Love to all we greet

For in the season of peasants and kings
Gifts from different hearts
Are given with such Joy and Peace
As Love to all imparts

May your life be filled with Amazing Grace
As only God can do
Many Blessings be to you and yours
Is my wish for you

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Kwanza...
 Happy whatever you celebrate this time of year...

And a Very Blessed and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Along your paths - May the dawn bring you hope, the flowers-joy, the mountains - strength, the wind - laughter, the rain - peace, but above all, may your faith bring you love.
Merry Christmas day Nina.
