The following poem is just one the delightful selections included:

The Sights and Sounds of Christmas

The sound of joyful church bells Heard from a distant hill,

A warm and cozy fireside

To chase the winter's chill.

The jingle of the sleigh bells,

A Christmas candle's glow,

The cherished celebrations

Each heart has come to know.

A child's anticipation

As he peers beneath the tree,

And finds the gift he asked for When he sat on Santa's knee.

The sights and sounds of Christmas

Woefully will depart,

But the wondrous love of Jesus Can remain within each heart.

~Catherine Janssen Irwin

I found Cotner's beautiful book to be inspirational as well as a timeless resource for my personal holiday notes to family and friends, and our family celebrations. You can also use her book as a devotional that is read before bedtime in the evening as a meditation or during family reading time. Christmas Blessings a wonderful gift for teachers, pastors, friends or family.
