The beauty of this season
Holds joyful hues of
Family & friends, traditions & love.
But most of all, a Savior.

The melodies of this season
Hang lightly in the air in
Homes & hearts, steeples & stores,
But most of all resounds, of a Savior.

The symbolism of this season
Is reflected in forms,
In patterns & shapes, designs & styles
But most of all, in a Savior.

The meaning of this season
Both cloaked & revealed,
Sacred & secular, cherished & ignored
But in spite of them all, a Savior.

The melancholy of this season
Wistfully clinging to a
Brother & sister, mother & father
But most of all they cling, to a Savior.

The promise of this season
Hopefully whispering to
Souls & minds, hearts & bodies
That there is most of all, a Savior.

In spite of our soulful carol this year and missing Jenna so very much,
we join you in celebrating the promise of a SAVIOR who is a
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.

Much love to you all!

The Siders


  1. May God give you a special time together this Christmas. We are spending ours in the hospital with Ted's dad's surgery this morning. His plans are not what we would have chosen... learning to be content in whatever state I'm in, the secret of life. Love you guys!

  2. Celebrating that Savior with you. Soul-fully. Dana
