Joy of Saint Nicholas Haiku

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating with Saint Nicholas
the love of God in the Incarnation.

must be open to it!

Good Saint Nicholas
Most generous follower
Model of giving

Good Saint Nicholas
 He teaches humility
Heed his example

So it is that we are called to follow the Savior in HUMILITY and LOVE for all.  And Saint Nicholas lived his life in such a way that we might know that it is possible even today to be giving and loving as our Savior and Lord has taught us to be.
Thanks be to God!!!

Mosaic Monday

Santa's Helpers

The fairies and elves on last Christmas-tide
Decided to open their hearts very wide,
And spend extra time, throughout the whole year,
In helping their grandfather—Santa Claus dear.

"Our fingers are nimble. We'll quickly make toys
Enough to supply all the girls and the boys,
And Santa may watch us to see if it's right,
So all will be ready before Christmas night."

Then bravely they all went to work with a will,
And soon all was quiet in workshop and mill;
For old Santa said, "Enough, and well done,
We've toys enough now to make all kinds of fun."

We thank you, old Santa, and your helpers, too,
For all of the many kind things that you do;
And should you need more help in making your toys,
Just call on your small friends, the girls and the boys.

It's been so very busy here at the Keller's that I've not had a chance to visit all my friends in the "neighborhood."  Hoping to be able to spend for time during this glorious season.  Wishing you all the very best!!!  And here's hoping that, you all are bein' the best helpers to Santa you can be.


Thanks be to God!
