This book portrays Christmas as the magical time it is. Not just because of Santa Claus, gifts, and lighted trees, but because of the true Light that came into the world on that first Christmas. With colorful images and rhyming text, it subtly reveals how we honor Jesus, the Light of the World, by hanging Christmas lights, giving gifts, and singing carols. Both children and adults will feel not only the magic of Christmas, but the beautiful truth it represents.
To my dear church family, Shady Grove United Methodist Church. Thank you for allowing me to use my poems in our Christmas Programs year after year – and to the many generations of youth who helped me bring these words to life. This book is just a portion of one of those times. I am so humbled and thankful to be a part of this small, country congregation that is connected to the family of God all over the world and in heaven.
