Merry Christmas from 'Expressions'...

Baby Jesus and Santa Claus

Happy Birthday, Jesus

In the silence of the night
He comes to us, bringing
heavenly love and warmth
 within His glorious touch

As we accept His gift and
cherished love that surrounds us
we gives thanks to Him for He
brought to us His Son today

Our hearts receive His purity
light that shines upon a new born
in the hay, the light captures our
souls bringing us understanding

Remembering baby Jesus and His birth
we give thanks to you Father for
your blessings and our gift of life as
we bow our heads and give our hearts -
 to your Son Jesus

- Rhoda Galgiani


'Expressions' is Sending Holiday Blessings
To All for a Glorious Christmas Season.
Let Us Not Forget What Christmas
is Truly About - Him...

Hugs from Rhoda

Dear Rhoda,

Beautiful message in this poem. You are right--our primary focus should be celebrating Christ's birth. We've simplified things over the years as one can get so caught up in the trappings. Merry Christmas my friend. Thank you for continuing to spread your light with Expressions. Wishing you a successful 2014. Keep up the good writing.

Love,
Karen

Dearest Rhoda, Thank you for blessing my life with your special poems all this last year and before. What a gift you have for expressing yourself in poetry. I loved this poem. Indeed, if we can keep Christ in Christmas and even all year long, we will do well. Give your little Gracie a pat on the head for me. Love you dearly.

Thank you for the endearing comment Charlene. I believe many have forgotten what Christmas is really about - I choose to remember His birth above all - but, I still buy myself a Christmas Present every year...LOL I tell myself it is my gift from HIM...rg

This poem is beautiful Rhoda! Your gift with words always amazes me. I have a ceramic statue like the picture below of Santa bowing before Jesus, and its one of my favorite Christmas decorations. Thank you for sharing this poem with all of us. There always seems to be something 'extra special' in your poetry when you write about God. I think it's because it comes from the deepest part of your spirit.

By the way...I also enjoyed the one your friend Karen O'Leary wrote, and the way she speaks about you, one can clearly see she a fan of your poetry, as I am.
