OH CHRISTMAS TREE

So, here’s a more modern, possibly slightly cynical version of a popular Christmas song:

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’re higher priced than ever.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Afford you I can never.
Your greenery fills the parking lot
In hopes that soon you will be bought;
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Commercial endeavor.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Made from fiber optics;
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
One of many topics
In homes and businesses everywhere;
On cards and windows here and there!
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
With artificial objects.

 

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’re in so many places;
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Bring smiles to people’s faces.
With lovely smell of evergreen;
And proudest grandeur ever seen;
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
We love your many graces.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
