Worry Free Christmas Eve


Today I’m going to eat all the candy and cookies and things

No worrying about calories or diets for the next few days

I might gain a pound, maybe two, maybe three

But what does it matter on this holy Christmas Eve?

If the story is true, and I know it to be,

Mary and Joseph found refuge and rest in a cave

Mary gave birth to Jesus our King

What could be better than His birth to celebrate?

So today I won’t think of all my worries and troubles

I will wrap all the gifts and hang stockings with care

I will bake up a storm and clean and then…

I will turn off the lights and sing carols as I sit

Enjoying quiet with my favorite person of all

Jesus, my Savior, my all in all.
