Family’s Christmas Song

22 Dec

Wake up! Wake up! It’s Christmas morn! We don’t care where we come from, or were we were born! We’ve seen the gifts in every one’s heart —we have the reason — from where this starts.

Good morning! Scrambled eggs, French toast, home fries, hot cocoa, and coffee dark and local roast. Adulthood peeking into childhood memories. Quietly giggling, mama kissing all our cheeks warm —papa getting dressed, telling us to get ready for church, “to celebrate a birth, in a stable long before we are born, another child in a family melody —poor as dirt”. Long before we understood —long before we could. And — as all children should.

We wake up! Awake, —on this Christmas morn; joyously understanding the meaning —and the chorus of our family’s Christmas song!

from a Holy night

[In the Old Testament books, several hundred prophecies about the Messiah and His blessed Kingdom can be found. They are scattered throughout almost all the books of the Old Testament, beginning with the Five Books of Moses and ending with the last prophets Zachariah and Malachi. The Prophet Moses, King David, the Prophets Isaiah, Daniel, and Zachariah wrote the most about the Messiah.]

And so we are born.

    I have three requests for Christmas: listen to Linus read the Christmas story (from Charlie Brown’s Christmas) and listen to Bob Dylan’s, “It must be Santa,” and almost any version of “A Christmas Carol.”

    “We’ve seen the gifts in everyone’s hearts” – lovely, and may it grow to be true for more and more.

    A lovely post, kiddo. Those memories do sneak in, dont they? I remember the cold of those winter nights and mornings, and the magic that accompanies Christmas when one is a child. I hope you have a lovely one, with your family all around you. Lots of laughter!
