Christmas Time Has Come
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


CHRISTMAS HAS CARRIED ON

Christmas has carried on
For over two thousand years
The birth of Christ still relevant
For that I say "three cheers:
The celebration's preparations
Of this most significant time
Makes for one a merriful heart
And blessings so sublime

I read the accounts on Facebook
Joyful family gatherings
The pictures taken of family and friends
Who have done a lot of traveling
To be near those they love the most
They go the extra mile
Their reward for doing so
The treasure of a smile

For memories are treasures sure
We keep them in our file
The days will come we reminisce
And cherish them awhile
Not forgotten ...loved one's are
They are in our thoughts each day
And when the evening bids us sleep
For loved ones we do pray

Father God has blessed us such
For this one day each year
When we can give someone some love
And give them Christmas cheer
So lighten up some soul today
With a kindly word
Let them know that God loves them
So much He gave the Lord

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
