Yes, Twas The Night

Twas the night before Christmas
And oh, what a spouse,
He'd hidden my present
Somewhere in the house.

The closets were bursting
With so much to wear.
I searched and I searched,
I couldn't find it there.

The drawers were so full
That they couldn't be shut.
I looked and I ransacked
And I'm not sure for what.

And me, so excited and not able to sleep
Just wanted one chance to find my present and peek.
When all of a sudden the clock started to chime.
If I couldn't find my present I would loose my mind.

But then came a thought,
It was so loud and clear.
I had lost sight of Christmas,
What happened this year?

I sprang from my bed and ran down the stairs,
Ran into the parlor and cried many tears.
I quick found my Bible and knelled down to pray.
How did it happen?   I'd lost Christmas that day.

The Nativity lay there
Nestled under the tree
Silently speaking
A message to me.

I asked God's forgiveness
I had seen the Light.
It's the birth of our Savior
Now all else seems right.

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. ♥
