My Christmas Wish For You

Here is a poem I wrote...MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!


'Twas the night before Christmas
In the great USA,
Its people were sleeping
It had been a long day.

They were tired of working
And wanted some peace,
Hopefully someday
This grind would cease.

The children were lying
Awake in their bed,
The meaning of Christmas
Was not in there head.

Mom was wrapping presents
While Dad let out a sigh,
They had spent too much money
Their bankroll was dry.

Keeping up with the Jones'
Was getting harder to do,
The price tags were getting higher
The presents were too.

Then out on our lawn
I heard this great sound,
I ran to the window
You won't believe what I found.

The moon had a glow
It was shining so bright,
My eyes were nearly blinded
By the most beautiful light.

And what to my awestruck
Eyes did I see?
But the figure of Jesus
Who was staring at me.

He brought with Him angels
To announce to the earth,
Tomorrow was Christmas
The day of His birth.

I stared in amazement
My prayers had come true,
I followed the light
What else could I do?

He was the essence of love
From His head to His feet,
Of all the people on earth
He was the one I hoped to meet.

His eyes how they shined
His smile was profound,
There was enough love inside him
To spread the world 'round.

He told me our hearts
Had hardened with time,
The hour was late
The bell would soon chime.

It was time to show kindness
We must put down our sword,
To find the meaning of Christmas
We must follow the Lord.

His word had been given
On a mountain so high,
He loved us so much
He was willing to die.

Now it was time for us to follow
All He had to say,
Tomorrow was nearing
It was almost Christmas Day.

With so little time
And so much to do,
The angels had left us
Around the world they had flew.

With trumpets a blowing
They spread the great word,
All over the world
This message was heard.

"The King is alive
You must all come and see,
The Savior is waiting
For you and for me.

If Christmas is to be found
You must look in your heart,
The Spirit is inside you
You were never apart.

He gave you His word
His love it is free,
If you follow in His footsteps
You'll be given eternity.

The sign of the cross
Still shines from above,
Don't ever forget it
It's the symbol of love.

His body went to Heaven
His Spirit's still here,
Your sins are forgiven
You have nothing to fear."

I bowed in His presence
I then humbly thought,
"This IS the greatest gift
I could ever have got."

I then heard the angels rejoice
As they were soon out of sight,
Singing "Merry Christmas to All
Who follow His light."

Thanks for your kind words. This poem has been published a few different places, along with some of my other ones. Someday I will get a book together. I hope your Christmas is a happy one.

Poetry.com said they published a few of my poems but I din't want to pay $100 for the book, so I've yet to find the book, they weren't evn sure what the title was going to be yet, so I guess they really wanted my money not my poetry. I am going to put together my own book, and am working on some other writing projects.

I really do like this poem of yours though. You have a Happy Holiday too!!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!! :)

Here is a prayer for those who may need one......


Dear Lord, I need your peace today.
I have crooked places that need to be made
straight and rough places that need to be smoothed
I'm facing mountains I can't climb and valleys
I can't cross. I need help. I release into your hands
all the worries and anxieties and struggles of life.
-Dr. Suzan D. Johnson Cook



What must I do?

God know my situation
I am but one
but I am one
I cannot do everything
but I can do something.

-Bishop Barbara Clementine Harris





Unexpected Blessings-

Give thanks
For unknown blessings
Already on their way.
-Native American Prayer




God Alone Suffices-

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing dismay you.
All things pass.
God never changes.
Patience attains
all that it strives for.
Those who have God
find they lack nothing.
God alone suffices.
-Teresa of Avila
