Christmas moments

A child giggles with the gift of joyous Christmas glee...
A prisoner remembers and cries himself to sleep...
A hospice patient smiles at the end of a Christmas carol...
A preacher has a vision of Joseph and Mary fleeing Herod...

A police officer smiles as a child suddenly gives him a hug...
A doctor thanks his staff with Christmas gifts and sits down...
A firefighter anxiously waits for the next 911 call...
A teacher says "Merry Christmas!" to a child in the hall...

A nurse helps a patient get into the transport van to go home...
A salesperson speaks joyfully to his son on his cell phone...
A mother gives birth to a child at the hospital, a girl...
A maintenance man finishes cleaning the church, for God...

       Some Christmas moments during this joyous season to remember,
       As the days count down during the closing hours of December...
