Archives For exclamation points

Merry Christmas!

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a blessed holiday season. I’d like to share a very special prayer that’s been a favorite of mine for many years. Writers will notice that there are many exclamation points in this poem, but I love it. We’ll discuss exclamation points in another post after Christmas. (Technically, it’s after midnight for me, but I’m still calling this a Christmas post.)

Prayer on Christmas Eve

O Wondrous night of star and song,

O blessed Christmas night!

Lord, make me feel my whole life long

It’s loveliness and light!

So all the years my heart shall thrill

Remembering angels on a hill,

And one lone star shall bless me still

On every Christmas night!

Until next time,
