a Christmas wish for you

Mixed in with all the happy hustle and busy bustle, 
           among the shining tinsel and beautiful bows, 
Amid the delicious sweets and thoughtful treats,
I wish for you
Contentment, peace, and time.  
Contentment in the knowledge that you have already 
          accomplished enough, spent enough, given enough.
Peace in your hurry and worry; peace in your home and heart.
And time.
          My wish for you is the gift of time.  Time to slow down.
Time to savor.  Time to count each blessing.  Time to love and be loved.
Most of all, 
          May you know the King of Kings who came to Earth so long ago.
May His love fill your heart this day.
Merry Christmas, friends.  
Merry Christmas.
