Keeping It Small


Each year we say "We'll keep it small.
We shouldn't buy so many gifts.
Christ didn't come to earth for this."

Then the shopping starts
And our hearts
Grow
Tall.

But surely God, if anyone, knows
Love overflows.

My goodness! I just discovered that I have people stopping by from Germany, Ireland, the UK, Canada, Egypt, and all over the U.S.

Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to comment and add your thoughts. I love interactive blogging.

Nothing warms my heart more than a short, well-stated sentiment. Thanks.

Isn't it fun making friends all over the world?
