The Real Christmas Story

Most people eagerly anticipate
the Christmas celebration,
scurrying here and there
consumed with preparation.

It's a favorite time of year,
but don't forget the reason
for all the merriment
this coming holiday season.

Remind folks everywhere
that Jesus Christ was born,
God's gift to all mankind
on the first Christmas morn.

Show them Jesus is alive
and offers us salvation,
for that is the purpose
we join in celebration!

In harmony with heaven
give Jesus all the glory,
as we again commemorate
the real Christmas story!

Merry Christmas to all...I remember what a pastor friend of mine once said, "SHOW them you are a Christian, don't just TELL them."  Praying for a peace-filled, Christ-centered, 2016 to Que & all the poets on Wordchimes~  God bless us everyone!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
