For Christmas I have asked to turn this blog into a book (super easy at blog2print.com) so I need to stop posting for a while so the manufacturer doesn't get confused! But I did want to do one more post.
*** Update: I've figured out how to turn my blog into a book without needing to stop posting for a while, YIPPEE!! So on with the posts!! ***
I have mentioned Ideals Magazine before and how much I love to read the poems and short stories contained in them. While I was organizing my books last night I came across this poem taken from Christmas Ideas 1951 entitled Hello, Again by Nina Gertrude Smith:
Hello, again, it's Christmas! in the postman's ring,
In a little child's face, on the snowbird's wing:
In the "sh-sh-sh" of secrets; colors, sounds, and smells-
In a stranger's warm, sweet laughter hear the golden bells!
Christmas in the sacred story of a Yuletide's song,
In a new re-captured glory righting every wrong.
In the joy of giving, giving... Christmas in the air; Faith and hope and love are living-
Christmas, Christmas, everywhere!
