Moods of Christmas

A busy season or it seems
A joyful shopping and gift wrapping
Spreading holiday wishes and dreams
Hoping to find a great treat in stockings.
Rehearsing familiar carols and hymns 
Prancing and frolicking to a holiday beat
While merrily baking pastries and sweets. 
Across a street, a neighbor alone
Shopping for dinner in a Dollar Store
Lonely grieving a family loss
The year hasn’t been kind
 – filled with icicles and frost. 
A time of year rife with sadness and stress 
Silent night to repent and confess.
