There is great joy that words may bring
Words that can cause one’s heart to sing
Sweet words that need remembering
Like peace and calm and happening.
Those gifts conceived that cannot wait
Like ice cream cake on lacy plate
Or breakfasts that begin at eight
With maple pancakes tasting great.
Christmas stockings filled to the brim
When all our blessings are from Him
A helpful thought, a kindly deed
An effort sought for those in need !
