And Then in a Twinkling

And Then in a Twinkling
Written by Patrick Regan
Illustrated by Becky Kelly
It seems only days since the kids yelled with delight, on a door - to door journey through the autumn twilight. 
And then, in a twinkling...December is here-there is frost on the pumpkin old songs fill the air. So haul out the holly ... and deck the halls... and start the list making ... and visit the malls. But while midst all the hubbub of holiday haste, do not neglect to reflect on what Christmas is based.

And then, in a twinkling...the magic comes back. The true meaning of Christmas can't be purchased or packed. For Christmas brings goodness, redemption and light and helps reconnect us to all that is right.


So don't miss the wonder while lost in to - dos, because in a twinkling ... this day will be through. So open your heart and be of good cheer. For now, in a twinkling... It is Christmas my dear!
Merry Christmas my friends!
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas week!
