Christmas Eve eve...

Tomorrow used to be my favorite day of the year. I am not sure it still holds that honor but it will be fun,and busy. I wanted to share my favorite Christmas poem right now , because right now is probably the only time I will have until Christmas day...

So .. with loving wishes for the best holiday season ever...

( Poem by Sofia Lyon Fahs)

For so the children come
And so they have been coming.

Always in the same way they come
Born of the seed of man and woman.

No angels herald their beginnings.
No prophets predict their future courses.

No wisemen see a star to show
Where to find the babe that
Will save humankind.

Yet each night a child is born is a holy night,

Fathers and mothers-
Sitting beside their children's cribs
Feel glory in the sight of a new life beginning

They ask, "Where and how will
This new life end?
Or, will it ever end?"

Each night a child is born is a holy night-
A time for singing,
A time for wondering,
A time for worshipping.
