MERRY CHRISTMAS

This picture was taken at the majestic Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. The poem was written  by my beloved grandmother, Gladys Parker, Nov. 2000

The awe of Christmas time
Touches hearts and souls
Bringing happiness to little ones
And peace to the old.

There’s a scent of Christmas pines
Hanging in the air.
The time of love and giving
Is felt most everywhere.

And when we think about
The reason this is true,
We bow our heads and say,
Dear God, this comes from you.

For long ago in humbleness
Wise men and shepherds came
Worshiping the newborn child –
Jesus is His name!

Say each “Merry Christmas”
With thoughts of this King.
Rejoice in His love
And His praises sing.

  1. Beautiful … both the picture and the blog. We have to hold the fellas to their word and go visit there … along with the other place you were telling us about … maybe in the spring. Whatcha think?
