Three
Kings came
bringing gifts for
babe in a manger.
Epiphany.

January Joy 6

Packing Christmas away, stripping the tree,
carefully wrapping each bauble,
some made by my Mum, some by me,
some gifts from absent friends;
each one holding a precious memory.

Christmas Gifts

“Christmas gift suggestions:

To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.”

Oren Arnold

Precious Gifts

Was it so many years ago you stole
my heart from me and swore to keep it safe?
In return you gave me yours to hold —
a fair exchange — I have it still, I know it’s beat.
Such precious gifts we gave back then,
precious still those promises we keep.
