                 On Chirstmas Day

Do the angels sing?
When I give a grand gift,
For relief of hope.

Did the Lord see us?
All being the same.
When he give his all,
To atone for our sins.

To be less then?
What we would like to believe.
While being more,
Of what he like us to be.

Wasn't it the Father who allowed?
His son to be born Chirstmas day.
As heavenly gift,
To be shared by all.

So what is this other thing?
I believe to be.
Such a grand gift.

Is it something?
To pay for my sins.

No!

It is a very small thing.
With the hope.
That I may share.

Some of
The love that is
Within.

By Merlyn Hearn.
These words are the only thing I can afford to give this year to anyone.  I pray it is enough.
Please feel free to copy.

A most perfect gift...the gift of love! Very nice poem Merlynh  

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

Couldn't believe you said it is all you can afford, as if love was insignificant, when it's not only the greatest gift anyone can give, it's also the most needed and welcomed.
You are rich in blessings and most humble.  God bless you.

Do the angels sing when you give someone a gift that they are hoping for?

The angels sing when you give the gift of yourself. When you reach out to others with the gift of love that you have presented here!  The best gift you can give comes from the heart, not the store!!!  Beautiful, inside and out!! For LOVE is the greatest gift of all!

Lovely gift, Merlynh.

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
