25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 19

“When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” Matthew 2:10
Christmas morning comes bright and early to homes where little children live. No one has to tell those little ones to get excited, or to be joyful. Their eyes sparkle as they dance and twirl before the glittering gifts waiting to be opened.
 
Our Father sent us the Greatest Gift of all when He sent His Son.
 
And those early players in the story of His birth were taken with great excitement as they watched the story unfold before them. 
The Shepherds REJOICED. 
The Wise Men were OVERJOYED. . . .

Today’s #HolyHaiku prompt on Instagram 
is “Emmanuel.” Come join
my friend Susan Shipe,

for more 
beautiful Haiku this Season. 
Into the days of Holiday Busyness,
I found myself sitting
with the nurse
as she taught me the technique
for yet another injection
for new medication. 

Emmanuel?
Are you with me even here?

“Yes, my daughter, even here”
as His Presence
carried my heart,
and brought joy
in the midst of hard.

May you find Emmanuel,
the true Gift of Christmas,
in the midst 
of your days also.
