Merry Christmas!

Today is the day we look forward to all year,
the day that we anticipate through the snow and the drear.
For some it's the thought of the presents under the tree,
For others its about what God did for you and me.

It's a day that is blessed by generations untold,
A day that is full of joys to unfold.
Though perhaps it's not the true day of birth,
it's the day we've chosen to celebrate with mirth.

Everywhere we go we feel happiness and love,
What a blessing we've received from the Great God above.
It's the time of year we show others our care,
with gifts to say, "Hey, I know you're there."

Throughout the day I hope you remember the reason,
That today's God's day, the whole purpose of the season.
Enjoy your families, your presents, the day,
And don't forget we celebrate because Jesus paid the way.



I am not a poetry writer, but I wanted to do this for everyone. :) Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you have such a blessed and great day. What an amazing time of year. I'm so thankful that I get to spend Christmas with my entire family! (Minus one nephew who comes on Saturday) It's so rare to get to spend God's special day with all my siblings and their spouses and kids. We've all taken so many different paths over the years. So when we can all get together for a day or two, it's a truly blessed time of year.
Have a great day everyone. God Bless.
