My Gift to All of You


Merry Christmas!


May His Life

Enter every heart

Resounding in Love and Joy.

Receive Him

You and me, for we are Blessed.


Christ was born to

Honor us and show us

Right from wrong.

Into our hearts and

Souls

To shine in Glory is His

Message to us all.

As He Loves us

So shall we love Him.

      Crafty, I'm so happy for you and your son. Music is soothing and healing. I'm glad he's found a place he loves and loves him back!

      Merry Christmas!

      What a beautiful poem Sha! We finally found a church where my son is welcome. They have a special needs team. At my grandfather's funeral, the pastor was from a church we had never heard of. My grandfather arranged his own pastor services before he passed. This past Sunday we went to the Christmas program. My son loves music. They were saying God sent his only son Jesus....and my son says, "well God is Jesus!" LOL He loves going to church. We just never found one that would accept him for his abilities.... :D

      I love you my dear Shauna. XO

      Thank you for stopping by, healthwealthmusic! Christ is what Christmas is all about. It seems to be forgotten, especially with children; they think it's all about them and how many presents they'll receive. :-(

      Eddy, that picture is actually from Christmas 2010. With my son working ungodly hours, we are not decorating this year. I'm afraid of ladders, so all the areas I can't reach are taken care of by my son. I'm only 5'2", so that's most of the exterior decorating! Ha ha.

      Typically, in Florida anyway, decorations start going up the day after Thanksgiving!

      I hate the tear down also; it seems to take so much more time than putting them up!

      This is beautiful Shauna and I love your Christmas lights.

      Do you know in this country (I'm not sure about yours) a few years ago decorations were not put up until the 12th day before Christmas;and I for one am so glad that everyone now seem to up them up on the 1st of December or before.The part I don't like is taking them down!!!

      Great poem Shauna which I vote across/up and share all around. I wish you a great run up to Christmas.

      Lots of love

      Eddy.
