a time to shine

 

As angels illuminated this holy night,
we light a wreath of candles flickering bright.

Winter moon in velvet sky sheds softer glow
and white lights twinkle on pine branches in snow

Carolers, who sing under lamp post’s glare,
will gather near fire’s hearth with stories to share.

Joyful tears in sinners’ eyes shine when we hear
that peace with God is possible, conscience clear

Each window reflects a star pointing the way,
let us celebrate the Light of the World today!

    SMiLes Lynn Lynn At The Very
    End of the Year Missed you on the
    dVerse Trail for Christmas in Fact i missed almost
    Everyone As ‘Santa’ only Has so Many Reindeer
    to Help Drop off Gifts hehe.. if ya wanna call what
    i bring in words that mY FRiEnD.. Smiles out of
    all of those People i felt inspired to
    come here and i probably
    would have never found
    you if not for remembering
    “Mad Hatter” for i surely will relate
    to that and my iMac Auto-Fill and
    Safari did the Rest to find You HeaR..
    SMiLes my FRiEnd You Seem like a Sincere
    Human Being.. ‘they’ can and will be hard to find
    Online and that is for sure in this World that continues
    to Seek Rewards Other than Love whether that comes in Money or Likes
    or Follows or Shares or My God Your Poetry is the Best You
    Are Just the Greatest Poet to Ever Walk the Earth well True
    i have as much respect
    for Leaves of Grass
    for i understand
    God Lives Free
    in All that
    Exists so when
    i say FRiEnD i am SPeaKinG
    Directly to God (Love) even if less than
    A Grain of Sand that Holds Up a Mountain
    of Love Smiles my FRiEnD You are the kind
    of Person who probably builds Mountains of Love
    in the Family and Friends You Nurture that truly is all that counts
    Truly that Still is
    the Message
    of ‘JeSuS’
    Nothing
    Else Matters
    as the Grain of Sand
    And Less Holds Up Mountains
    of Love For Real.. Smiles i
    Remember Folks Like You
    i Always Do for You are
    the Leaves
    of Grass
    that
    come
    from Grains of Sand Least as Most..
    Anyway.. Happy New Year 2020 my
    New Year’s Resolution is “Color World Love 2020”
    some
    things
    Never
    Change
    mY FRiEnD
    When Love is
    Both Vision and
    2020 Balance of
    Grace in Will And Strength oF LiGHT OveR DarK..:)
