WINTER NIGHTS CAN SEEM SO ENDLESS!

Bonfires crackle... sparks dance like fireflies... whirling ever higher...
Black velvet sky... a perfect backdrop... as rainbow fireworks shower...
Glittery patterns... lots of bangs and whooshes!
Bringing 'O-o-o-os' and 'A-a-a-ahs' from excited, upturned faces.
Toffee apples... baked potatoes... sausages... treacle toffee too...
What a feast on Bonfire Night for me and you!

Jack Frost nipping at fingers and toes -
Where he'll strike next, no one knows!
Icy roads cause traffic chaos,
Gritter lorries work all through our night's repose.
Children snug in winter woollies, rosy cheeks all aglow,
Slide on moonlit, silvery patches, hoping God will send some snow!

Cheery, welcoming, fires are burning,
Some still make their toast for tea by the glow.
Shadows cast around the room's edge... as evening creeps in...
Draws people nearer for the 'Flaming, Fantasy Show'!
See the mountains... or fairy castles...
See the dancers with their skirts and capes awhirl!

Chestnuts popping, candles flickering,
Holly berries and mistletoe.
Scents of pine, mingled with the aroma of baking,
Rustling paper secretly wrapped around presents, finished with a pretty bow!
In the midst of darkest winter, God silently Gives
'The Light of the world', His Love to Bestow!

Winter nights can SEEM so endless,
But The Eternal Message still breaks through...
In spite of all man's efforts to spoil and hide God's Gift of Love,
Many hearts each year are opened to The Truth from Heaven above!
Hope that such A Loving Gesture from The Father of us all,
Through Jesus, will one day bring us into the centre of Heaven's Hall!
