Xmas

 
Just an abbreviation?
We write it to save time.
Marking our Christmas boxes,
Making them easy to find.

If we’d stop and think about it,
We may realize what we have done.
We have taken the Christ out of Christmas,
X’d out the name of God’s Son.

So let’s take an extra moment
And thank God on bended knee.
We can put the Christ back into Christmas
For all the world to see.

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
