’Twas the night before Christmas
And all over the Earth,
Not a child was homeless;
Each one prized for their worth.
With plenty of food, clothes, love and health care,
They all go to school;
Bad behavior’s quite rare.
The children all warm, safe and snug in a bed;
No visions of violence aswirl in their heads.
How do you imagine the perfect Christmas Eve?
Prayer: May we truly prepare ourselves for love to be born anew in us and peace to rule in the world. Amen.
