Make a Joyful Noise

23 Sep

From the Heart

Louise Gibson


“The holiest of all holidays are those kept

by ourselves in silence and apart.

The secret anniversaries of the heart.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


I applied Longfellow’s words to my heart

and brought Christmas into view.

I decorated my Christmas tree.

I wish I could share it with you.


A beautiful glass cross adorns the top,

and tiny white angels express their song.

When I keep my thoughts on Jesus, our Lord,

I have Christmas all year long.


The Christmas Gift

      Thank you, Danny. I LOVE the Christmas season. Since man decided when we are to celebrate, I decided to follow my heart and enjoy celebrating our Savior’s birth a little earlier this year…and I am LOVING it! I find even the staff at the assisted living where I am residing are sharing in the moment! : – ) ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS”. p.s. i HOPE YOU GET TO READ THIS MESSAGE.
