What If Christmas Never Came?

What If…   Christmas Never Came???


What if Christmas never happened? 

What if Christmas never came?

Things around here would be different!

It wouldn’t be the same!


What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger?

Mankind would be in serious trouble.

We’d all be in danger!


If the baby Jesus wasn’t born. 

There would be no nativity.

We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.”


It’s almost like this now!

 It’s an “ever increasing business.”

It seems like nearly everyone wants

  “Christ out of Christmas!”


Why does it seem like Christmas is

 losing it’s true meaning?

The very words; “Merry Christmas,”

seem to be quickly disappearing!


Many say; “Happy Holiday.” 

They worry they may “offend.”

Having a “holiday” without Christ…. 

Once again!


We need to put Jesus Christ back into

our CHRISTmas season!

He is what Christmas is about! 

HE is the very reason!


May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth.

May there be shouts of  JOY!  From the corners of the earth!


Let’s not take Christ out of our

joyous celebration!

We need him so much right now!

 All over this great nation!


May we bring to him a heart of love

 for everything he’s done.

As we bring honor to Christ.  God’s  precious son!


May we continually offer to him

a heart filled with praise!

Not only at Christmas time… 

But all of our days!

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!
