White Christmas

DSCN0903_2

It was always going to be difficult

Every little thing

Of this first Christmas

Memories of many

Memory of one

A Trigger

For Happiness

For tears

I could not taint

What was

With what is

I renew

Choosing a White Christmas

Tree

Lights

Ornaments

White

Colour of

Childhood Christmas

Jack Frosted Lace

Icicles

Snow

White

Shining in the East

Colour of

Mourning

Sorrow

White

For me is

Fresh

Pure

Shining with Hope

A Light in Darkness

Exchanging that Darkness for light

I hold Hope in my heart

One day I will see him

This man gone

This man I Love

This man I miss

So much

That Hope

Borne of Love

Born at Christmas

In the face of a babyDSCN0879

Jesus Christ

God’s own Son

Painful

Yes

Difficult

Yes

Worthwhile

Oh Yes

I find

I can be happy and sad

I can see the true meaning of Christmas

More clearly through tear misted eyes

I Hope

For Peace

For Joy

For Happiness

Choose to make it so

  1. Beautiful words and pictures..
    Light and hope this Christmas with a new year before you x

  2. Beautiful – as always. You’re amazing. Hope the day went well for you – we missed you at church. It must have been a strange one for the whole family this year – I pray you were all able to make some new memories or traditions like you have with the tree. Not forgetting what was, but also experiencing new. xx

  3. Denise that is so beautiful and brave. Love you, Lyn Date: Mon, 23 Dec 2013 07:53:39 +0000 To: cherns77@hotmail.com
