Loving One Another

Love is Everywhere

GONE

Gone are the robins
Gone is the fall
Gone are the leaves
The wind took them all.
Gone is the turkey
The cranberry, too
But love’s never gone
When I think of you.

 

HERE

Here is December
Here is the tree
Here are the presents
With love wrapped by me.
Here are the bright lights
Here candles glow
Here is the wreath
Here comes the snow!

 

THERE

There are the shoppers
Siftin’ the pickins
From Black Friday frenzy
Peckin’ like chickens.
Plucking a bargain
Spending their dough
There are the shoppers
Where is the glow?

 

EVERYWHERE

Looking for the perfect gift?
The right thing to share?
Don’t look in shopping malls;
You won’t find it there.

Looking for a pocket watch
To help him count the hours?
Looking for the magic fly
To boost his fishing powers?

Looking for a spiffy shirt
To guard him from the cold?
He has clothes enough to spare.
That’s not the trick, I’m told.

Don’t go shop in super stores
For the perfect gift to share;
Just point him to God’s love and yours –
He’ll find it everywhere!

HAVE A BLESSED, LOVE-FILLED DECEMBER!
