Christmas Cheer

Christmas poem

 

 

  Christmas cheer

In this time of yuletide cheer
We are reminded why we are here
people rushing to and fro
Getting into deep financial woe
Going always to the brink
Usually after too much to drink
If we would stop or just slow down
and remember the man with the thorny crown
Who started as a babe around these dates
you know he tried to show us how to control our fate
He preached peace and love, good will to all men
God will forgive you if you just let him in
It’s not really difficult to go and do our part
Maybe you’ll miss the blue light special at ole K-Mart
But is that what it really means to you
All the hustle and hype and the Bart Simpsons too
Or do you long for the old days when holiday cheer
Meant a trip to your church to dispel all your fears
Where we sat with each other and worshipped the Lord
Instead of the tube trying to sell us a Ford
The choirs heavenly chant around us will swirl
If we remember God’s only son, the most precious of pearls
It’s not too late to get off that treadmill
To take control of our lives without bottles or pills
To let go and let God and let all good that prevails
Wrap around us and comfort us, so what you missed a few sales
God is the only light and our eternal salvation
And this season is His gift to us to use with elation
So honor and cherish that babe oh so precious
And forget all the hoopla it’s
God that will bless us

Wrote this a long time ago figured I would dust it off and share it again. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all and in the words of my favorite little person "Tiny Tim"  God Bless us everyone!
