    Recession is here
    The Yuletide is near
    With depression on the rise
    I'm having a beer and calming
    Our fears with that lager on my mind

    We're living in times
    When fate is UNKIND
    But surviving all the while

    The Savior did rise to open our eyes
    To the SUBSTANCE of our lives

    The present God gives eternally dear
    Like the sun shines through my life
    I'll testify here to celebrate with
    Believers of The Christ


    The focus is clear and Christ will appear
    Every Christmas that we share
    The Spirit of LOVE complete
    With the DOVE
    Everyday of
    Every year :dance:


    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    With everything that's going on, it can be difficult to mellow out and enjoy the holiday, and it helps to concentrate on the purposes intended for that day. Flow on poet.

    I LOVE Christmas

    I agree with your words, dear Poet!

    This is the time of year to celebrate Christ and gives thanks for all that we have been given through HIM. I love Christmas lights and Christmas music - it sooths the soul... and although I'd love to have a beer with you, I can't drink anymore... but, cheers to Christmas and celebrating HIS birth! I raise this cup of Starbuck's to you! :wave:
