A Week before Christmas and all through the house

The Week Before Christmas

A week before Christmas and all through the house;
many creatures are stirring, even the cats.
 They swing on the front door wreath to get a peak in.
And make us laugh in humor to wonder what's next from them.

We cooked Christmas cookies and sprinkled them with sugar
in hopes that our week is sweet and filled with splendor
The Christmas cards are all addressed to special people
and waiting to go to the post office, then off to the church with a steeple.

yes, church on Christmas Eve is a special blessing indeed.
For we remember what the true meaning of Christmas will bring.
Each year we are reminded of true blessings in all forms
That lead us to promises and hope for much more.

We don't necessarily wish for things for they
are really not the meaning of this holiday
We wish for peace and harmony within
our true friends hearts and those who try to win.

For all of us really want to be close to our Maker
and praise Him for what He has done, even if through baking
Baking kind gifts to acquaintances and friends
fills my heart with the true gift of Christmas.

In this late hour, my Abigail is restless
but hopeful for a better 2012 that's blessed
She is a true companion with unconditional love
the kind that God wants us all to spread to the ones we love

If ever you don't believe in Angels oh so near,
read the Christmas story and I can testify they are here.
Some are busy and some are not
But all in all, it's what we got

To protect us, guide us, and send good cheer
At a time, a precious time, of the end of the year
To all my friends both far and near
Remember the angels said not to fear

For baby Jesus was born in a manger to share
all His love for all of us, even those who do not care.
He's forgiving in that way, which makes him more special
For forgiveness was born, to help us with protection.

So as you start the week before Christmas
think of all that God has done for you
And anyone's Christmas is a glad time that is due.
After many trials and tribulations that are promised to endure
It started with one baby who's birthday is pure.
