the residents of our floor
came to our apartment
for a Christmas get together.
We had cookies, coffee, tea,
and cran-pomgranite juice.
No one eats very much,
in the spirit of Christmas
draws us together as friends.
My husband decorated our artificial tree
and set out many decorations.
Having the neighbors in inspires him.
Thank you for your love, Gracious God,
that draws us together.
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”
Hymn: Love Came Down at Christmas
