It’s Time For Hollies And Berries

“The natives showed us extraordinary kindness; for because of the rain that had set in and because of the cold, they kindled a fire and received us all.”  (Acts 28:2)


It’s time for Hollies and berries

And good news I’m sharing

It is fun and toys

And trees full of joys


It’s Christmas and giving

It’s hope and it’s living

It’s heartfelt and genuine

It’s new Love for the first time


It is fun and frolicking

Its sleigh rides while polishing

Its skills and drills

With fun in the hills


It’s cooking and cleaning

While dreams we are dreaming

It’s good and it is fun

It was a boy with a drum


Bring whatever you have

Come on don’t be a drag

It’s the time of the year

To hold loves ones near


It’s time for hollies and berries

Good news to be sharing

Because life is worth living

When love you are giving



Don’t fail to look around

Wear your best smile never frown

Because Christmas time is near

Be the one to bring the cheer

During these last few days before Christmas, the greatest gift we have to offer to others  is our hope. The hope we have in Jesus Christ must be shared. We do not grieve like those of the world. As believers in Messiah Jesus, the world see that we are different. They see that in struggles we have strength, in chaos we have calm, and in panic we have peace. The peace of God covers all who believe. This peace is a gift that was prophesied for many years and then proclaimed on the night of Christ’ birth. Peace on earth to those on whom His favor rest, this is our gift and our promise. God is not withholding His favor. No. God longs to cover all that will come to Him, with His peace. Jesus said “this peace I give you.” What a gift. Not as the world gives do I give, Jesus said.

We need to share this “Good News” the gift of Jesus Christ” and His salvation. Be the one this year to offer hope and good news to those around you. It is “Good News. It is Very Good News.”

“As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.” (Proverbs 25:13)

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
