A Christmas Of Meditation
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

Lord may I slow down the pace
That Christmas usually brings
The busyness of running around
To buy the gifts and things
The cooking and the baking
The meals to be prepared
And think upon the Gift You are
And the message to be shared

So many hurting people Lord
We pass them every day
BroKen heart's in need of mending
They need to know the Way
And we who have You in our life
Pray give us voice to express
The blessing of Your love for all
And the offering of forgiveness

How I pray to pray the more
This world is in darkened days
And men who have rejected the Truth
Are lost and in a haze
The Father of lies has blinded eyes
To the Gift of so great Salvation
By Your Holy Spirit Lord
Bring revival unto our nation

May I who am a recipient of
Lay hold of Your faithfulness
Reminded of Your coming to earth
Your coming the world to bless
And in the giving of Your Son
For the Gift of so great Salvation
How repentance can change a life
A Christmas of Meditation!

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
