Hallelujah Choruses

~Image Source~
Released from school for Christmas break eager children rushing to catch their bus shout "hallelujah!"
Moms finish with Christmas decorating and baking, with a weary collective sigh say "hallelujah!"
Christmas shopping done at last, dads tally up the charges, with relief they utter "hallelujah!"
Tree lit and table ready, grandparents wait anxiously for arrivals, learning that the roads are being cleared for travel they whisper "hallelujah!"
Long ago on a holy night we have nearly lost sight of, angels gathered at a humble stable to sing their praises "hallelujah!"
This was written for In Other Words where Patricia has asked us to  
write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word
hallelujah - noun; a shout of joy, praise, or gratitude,
an expression of relief or a similar emotion

 Come and share your five lines  with us!


  1. The first is always the best, isn't it?

    1. I think it often can be, but sometimes the very best is saved for last too! :-)

  2. Wonderful! You have captured today's Christmas and remind us of the real Christmas.
    Thank you for being a part of In Other Words.

    1. Thank you for giving us these opportunities to share our thoughts, Patricia, I really enjoy "In Other Words." I do feel like our society has moved too far away from what Christmas is supposed to be, it has become a celebration of crass commercialism, over spending, and exhausted "must do's". We keep it very simple in our home and family, and it feels so much nicer that way. The true Christmas is a blessing, the very best blessing of all!
