Stage 3 ‘Readily..’ (for the season) Day 16

ticking-along

Time to get your things

Time to pray and give thanks

Time now for the choir to sing

Time to make those xmas plans

 

Time to figure out if you believe

Time to remain above the fray

Time to give and hopefully receive

Time to celebrate The Christmas Day?

Stage 3 ‘readiness factor'(for the season) Day 15

20151112_154202

Size isn’t everything you’re told

Its  the intent of the gift that matters,

When you get an age,

Where stuffed toys dance on stage

You scream so loud that glass shatters..

Stage 3 ‘In Readiness’ (for the season) Day 14

waiting-game

Relax,  exhale, breathe

Shiver, twitch, distract

Wait, work, reveal

Food, stomach, attract…

Stage 2 ‘Preparations’ (for the season) Day 9

waiting-game-of-patience

Yes its supposed to be a virtue

Good things come to those who wait

A couple of weeks in lieu

The 25th is coming, so remember that date…

Stage 2 – ‘Preparations ‘ (for the season) Day 8


Snowflakes fall,

Snowflakes dance

Snowflakes we are in awe

Snowflakes please take a chance

To twirl from the winter white sky

To dissolve on our nose

To inspire as we stand by

To shower and cover our Xmas clothes…

Stage 2 ‘preparations'(for the season) Day 6


Inside or out set the tone

Let everyone know it’s time

The decorations are up around our homes

As we ready the turkey and mulled wine…

Stage 1 (for the season) Day 4


So another day is chalked off

Excitedly we’ve opened our box

Time to get the gear from the loft

And maybe start wearing our xmas socks?

Stage 1 For the season (day 3)

The anticipation begins to build

Trees going up sets the tone

As we dress up the green

They are a sight to be seen

Shining hope into all our homes

Stage 1 – For the Season (Day 2)

days-ahead-from-the-start

Yes that’s right

We are counting down the days

Eleven months of darkness will become light

As the season of good cheer is here to stay…

Stage 1 for the Season(the first few days)


The first calendar window reveals

Our elf deserves a taste

Will the 2nd window gift appeal?

Be patient and not make haste…
