About Christmas


What to write about Christmas ---

Holly sprigs and mistletoe,

Fireplaces warm - all aglow,

Shoppers as they come and go,

Children playing in the snow,

Gifts all wrapped , a pretty show,

Greetings sent to “Jim and Flo”


Think I’ll write about Christmas ---

About the day Christ was born

In a stable all forlorn,

How Mary, through days of scorn,

God’s servant, all travel-worn,

Birthed our Savior on that morn.

Royalty, yet unadorned.


Think I’ll write about Christmas ---

Jesus came without a shout.

Yes, that’s what it’s all about.

Angels proclaimed – there’s no doubt,

To shepherds who had no clout.

‘Twas an unexpected route.

Disciples would His grace tout.

My sin He has blotted out.


I’ll live eternally because I truly believe Him!
