A candle flickering
A starlit sky glimmering
A streetlight shining
A baby giggling...




A sunrise bursting
A kitten purring
A waterfall shimmering
A bird a'twittering...




A Christmas tree sparkling
A flower bud opening
A luminous cloud floating
A sunset brightly glowing




On our life's pathway of hurdles & strife
We should pause along the way
To be thankful for all our gifts
Each and everyday




This season as we celebrate Jesus' birth...
Is a time for our own souls' rebirth
To remind ourselves to be thoughtful & kind
To help spread light throughout the earth
