We live much of life amid unique choices. Joy is anchored in The One beyond our life.
Nights of parties, smiling faces,
nights of rest, enjoying bliss,
nights of peace, and hopeful graces,
Joy in lights, and gentle kiss.
Nights of sitting with some coffee,
nights communing with some tea,
nights of cups, and sweetest toffee,
tastefully to share with thee.
Nights are longer in December,
nights requiring manmade lights,
nights our eyes feast on each ember,
colors glow reds, and greens, and whites.
Nights lead up to Christmas morning.
Nights then shorten ev'ry day.
Nights are God's Own gentle warning,
"Look to Jesus, and obey."
