SHORT SANTA

SANTAS

ART & POETRY BY PAUL  KATHY BOECHER©

This final little Santa Claus is on the shorter side,

He has no arms or legs you see, but surely he is wide,

His face is bright, his cheeks are red, his eyes are blue as sky,

His hair and moustache white as snow, he’s such a happy guy,

Each piece of art created by a master carver’s knife,

And given as a Christmas gift to his adoring wife,

I treasure every single one, because they are from him,

Displaying them at Christmas, my heart fills to the brim,

Even though they’re chunks of wood created for my pleasure,

I know that Christmas is much more, than gifts that we treasure,

Old Santa Clause is just a myth, but in this special time,

We hold the baby, Jesus close, the greatest gift sublime,

He is our priceless treasure, we love Him without measure,

He came to be our brother, to love us like no other,

To live a perfect life for us, to take away our guilt,

To go through pain and suffering and by the blood he spilled,

The greatest gift at Christmas time, lies on a bed of hay,

This tiny child has come to us, to take our sins away.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
