A January Acrostic and another contest

In honor of all the snow and cold we have experienced in January, I decided to write a January acrostic. And all those who will share their own acrostic about January this month will be entered in a drawing on February 1st for some packages of hot chocolate and microwave popcorn to enjoy the next time it snows!

Jump on a sled
And down the hill you go then
Now the only thing to do is climb back
Up the hill again!
And away you go until your nose and cheeks are
Red, then go to your house and eat popcorn with hot chocolate and then
You snuggle in your warm bed!

I thought half of this up while taking a bath on Sunday evening, so please share what you can do! And don't forget to leave an email addy so I can send your January care package off to you soon!

I will have to try that Rose but probably no one will ever get to see it tho it just might be fun to try???? I have no writing skills.

Oh, I love acrostics! Let me try:
Just chill
And listen to the still, but
Not until you
Understand the thrill.
And you will thrill to
Remember the chill when
You turn the calender to August. :)

Jupiter! Alas! How can it be?
Another sunny day.
Not the piles of snow I remember.
Up north it's all white.
Round these parts the sun visits more.
Arkansas barely touched with snow.
Really? No snowball fights?
Yeah ... but marshmallows work, too.

Here's my contribution, Rose, with a lot of poetic license and appreciation to Jesus for His generosity! :)

Jesus kisses every snowflake
As it leaves the sky,
Nudging it so gently earthward
Urging it to fly.
Always guiding till it floats
Right into my back
Yard. Piled high! 

Okay, I'm behind times as usual, but let me say I especially love Deb Raney's (hi, Deb!) I don't feel creative enough to try this right now, but it was great to read those who did.
