The True Meaning of Christmas


During this Christmas,

let’s celebrate Christ’ birth.

It was for all of us that he

 came down to earth.


As we think about Bethlehem

 and the baby boy…

We shout glad tidings to all!

 And peace and joy!


This young child was to one day

 touch all of mankind.

His message of salvation… 

Today…  You can find!


As we celebrate and fill up

 with holiday cheer…

This same Jesus is alive today…

 And is always here!


Though 2000 years ago,

 he was born in a manger...

You can know him NOW!  He doesn’t

 have to be a “stranger.”


Won’t you spend some time and reflect

on Christmas’ true meaning?

It’s in the merciful arms of Jesus

 that you need to be leaning!


The good news of Christmas can

certainly be found…

Across this nation. 

Every city…  And town!


This same Christ can bring peace

to your life today!

He loves you much more

than words can say!


May HIS love bring peace and healing

 to your weary soul…

It’s only in him, that you can be

 complete and whole!!!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
