We finally rested, except my poor spouse -
For a preacher the Christmas church programme is gruelling,
With barely a moment to stop for refuelling.
We’d Skyped with our Sarah across the wide world,
The baubles were hung and the tinsel unfurled.
The gifts were all wrapped – ‘twas a last-minute rush,
We’d braved busy malls, and we’d coped with the crush.
The binding and label now stitched to this quilt,
I relaxed with a coffee, quite ready to wilt.
The cherry tomatoes I’d carefully stuffed;
With the spud salad made, I was feeling quite chuffed.
My hair had been trimmed and my nails had been done -
(Yes, I know it’s bright, but isn’t it fun?!?!)
The countdown to Christmas was almost complete
With Christmas tunes playing I felt quite upbeat.
The night before Christmas is my favourite time
To focus on God’s Greatest Gift so sublime.
Midst the tinsel and toys and the hype of the season
Let’s remember to celebrate CHRIST as the Reason.
Prayers for a wonderful Christmas to all my blog-buddies
