Gods Blessings abound

God's blessings abound on this wonderful day

as we rush through the flurry of shopping and play


We must not get caught up in these hectic times

Let's count all our blessing with heavenly rhyme


Happiness is hidden in each worried face

as we try to keep up with the seasonal pace


It's time to slow down and find a better way

to honor our Savior on His birthday


Set aside time to take a walk through the snow

spend time with someone special you know


Reach for the angel on the shelf in the store

to Give to a loved one, a friend you adore


Take a walk down the street, to see Glittering lights

invite all the family to see the wondrous sights


Drop a few dollars that the big Red Kettle needs

you will be spreading joy to the folks that it feeds


Stare at the heavens so high up above

and know God created each star with his love


The flowers on the hillside, each snowflake unique

The trees standing tall on a high mountain peak


Gaze all around at the beauty you see

He wanted to share these joyful gift with you and me


So as you meet with loved ones to share Christmas cheer

tell of the blessings God has given this year!

      I've been a bell ringer before. "Drop a few dollars that the big Red Kettle needs // you will be spreading joy to the folks that it feeds" Awesome line:-)

      Your positive words of truth are a reminder and encouragement for us all...blessings are ours every day, and we should celebrate every day, even though Christmastime is so very special too!

      Each 'star, flower, tree...the beauty' around us is indeed there if we but look! Enjoyed your delightful poetry!
