T’was The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house we scurried about like a mouse tucking wrapped boxes and gifts ‘neath the evergreen tree in the hopes that their bed they would soon see “but wait” shouts out kijsa startling all in the room and everyone knew a new project would begin soon… “The tree is all decked with ornaments bright and the stockings are hung above firelight,” “The presents all wrapped with be-ribboned flair but what looks so simple is that empty box there” “Why the rough wood on the sides could be scrubbed and adorned so that it would not stand so bare and forlorn…” “but as we stood there we knew it was perfect and would let it stand” “For the simple box opened to reveal what they saw… a rough and unwoven mat made of straw” “and they knew past the sparkle and all the rush and the fray the true gift of the Babe given on Christmas day.” .
