A belated Merry Christmas

I realize Christmas Day has come and gone and yet I still want to post my Christmas poem. 
Actually, I want to post my Christmas picture of Levi cuz I think he's just too cute!
My Christmas Poem for 2015 
No fancy decorations
Just simple red decor
No music, no laughter
Just silence galore
Neighborhood gifts passed out in light rain
Forced movement to try and ignore my pain
In just two days Christmas will be here
A small celebration without some wanting to be near
Tis the season said to be the most wonderful of all
And only one thought stops me from curling into a ball
Our Lord and Savior came as a babe to this earth
To save wretched souls like mine beginning at birth
I thank Thee, Lord Jesus, for leaving Your home above
Please bless those missed dearly with hearts full of love.

-- Poem written by Stacey Dawn, 2015 

Isn't Levi just precious?  And, I didn't even have to "torture" him with pretend antlers or a red ball.  All of the effects are from the free section of PicMonkey.*

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

My Christmas celebration was different than the previous years.  It was good though.... and very special in its own unique ways.

One of my favorite moments was attending our Christmas Eve service.  A gentleman sang "Hallelujah."  He has a voice that reminds me of my Dad.... and he sings that song like none other.  The lyrics and the melody stir my spirit, bring tears to my eyes and lift my soul to a level that just know is very close to Heaven. 

Until next time may your day be filled with light and laughter...
