Our Surprise Christmas Gift

Things are not always as you plan them.
So, let us come and enjoy our time together,
come and sit with one another for a while.
Moments like these remind us,
Oh, they so remind us what we mean to each other.
Christmas Time: the tree, the lights, the food
and most of all the people
are all a gift from God.

We remember those who are no longer here for the party.
We must enjoy the time together,
because we see that life can be so frail,
so unpredictable.
We can still hear the angel say,
“Don’t be afraid, I bring you good news of
great joy for all people.”

Let us sit together at Christmastime,
in the company of each other and our Savior.
Let us love one another at Christmastime,
and always.

This was written after my father-in-law had a collapsed lung and was out of the hospital in time for a Surprise visit to a Christmas party.
Luke 2:10

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
~Calvin Coolidge

“Never, never, never, never give up. “~Winston Churchill
