A Christmas to Remember

A Christmas to Remember

Psalm 127:3  Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.

Another Christmas has come and gone Leaving precious memories to think upon

With families scattered, in provinces four, leaving few coming through, the old homestead door

Our St. John family of only two so far Feared not the weather and hopped into their car Four hours of highway, ahead of them that day There’s no stopping them now as their sights are set on a great holiday

Christmas dinner at the Doucette’s, what a delight Ham, turkey and trimmings, the beginning of a great night Game time around the table, oh what a sight Passing gifts, from left to right, fun and laughter into the night

Our Nova Scotia family made it home through the snow Bringing gifts, love and laughter, HO HO HO Another Christmas dinner, once again was in store Adding to their short visit, we couldn’t ask for more

Our Kildare family, thought it was great To head for Newfoundland, they could hardly wait With a car full of goodies and tank full of gas They were off to Borden, school was out at last With their Labrador family beckoning them on Their Christmas holidays were sure to be fun

Now our Milton family of five, thought it was best not to drive, Down East this year as winter roads are not always clear But telephone and Facetime brought us together, In spite of this  year’s cruel winter weather Singing and jumping our grandkids we could see, Brought joy, to Aunts, Uncles, Boppie and Me

I Thank God for the technology of the day Where our families don’t seem, so far away

Luke 214 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men
