War on Christmas, Chanukah, and American CulturE

Please scroll down for new posts~! :)

Sweet friends. Tis the Season.
So……….Just for now….

Forget all the sadness and madness
Come share in the holiday gladness.
Love and hugs from family and friends,
And (in our case) food and talk that never ends.

If you miss Chanukas’ and Christmas’ peaceful inner light,
Nothing no longer will feel “just right”.

Chanukah and Christmas candles are a gift of light,
No other dancer throught the night
Can dance with such sheer delight.

Remember sweet friends,

Some of us may be far more than they seem,
Yet, we all search for one faraway dream.

I achingly hear all the lonely sighs,
From those of us trying to reshape souls and skies,
The ones whose fire of anguish never dies,
For lack of ears in our blessed Nation, to listen to our daily cries.

Those around us may be evil, twisted, ignorant or wise.
But this is our Life, where our purest joy or sadness lies.

Be not disheartened dear one.
Christmas and Chanukah are times for love and fun.
A time to give your heart to everyone.

Bless you all sweet friends.

And now…………Enjoy:

Ten-gallon hat tip to Toby Keith…again.
