My Christmas Poem: At Christmas Time

At Christmas Time
                                                           

String the lights upon the tree,
Place a candy cane for you and me.
Fix the stockings to the wall,
Hang the tinsel up the hall.

Sing a carol by the beach,
Make pavlova in the heat.
Cook the turkey or the prawns,
Wrap the presents, mow the lawns.

Kiss and hug the family,
Give what we can to the needy.
Pray for strength for the sick,
Remember loved ones that we miss.

For our God has sent His Son,
Jesus Christ the Peaceful One.
He who knows our joys and pain,
Gave His life, our life to gain.

So, hold hands with our neighbour,
Unite and seek the Risen Saviour.
Open our hearts to the One above,
 Celebrate Christ, God's gift of Love,
At Christmas time.

by Jennifer Ann 

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given...He shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, 
Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6 

 Glossary: Pavlova is a meringue dessert.
   Prawns are shrimps.
