2020 has been a challenge for all of us, each person and/or family facing different obstacles concerning the pandemic and losses or setbacks relating to unemployment, caretaking, social distancing, and the isolation for months. During this time, it is easy to face a form of depression and I thought I would post my poem from 2017 with this thought. Christmas must be a season that we overcome all opposition to the well deserved celebration to be observed on December 25 th. We celebrate to recognize that all things possible come from the special event which occurred on that miraculous day.
There is still a lot of time before Christmas Morn and a lot of us have started decorating and getting into the spirit of Christmas. I wanted to share my poem and post from last year to remind us again of why we celebrate Christmas. Please enjoy the season but remember the reason. In the world today, people want to dismiss this is celebration for Christ’s birthday and not for all of the worldly manufactured persona. As long as we keep Christ at the forefront, Christmas is a day of the truest celebration.
Here is the original post from 2017:
This is another Christmas poem I have written and since I had posted some of my other poems, I thought I should add this one. One of the best compliments I receive is when a family member (my dear Sister this time) read the poem and didn’t realize that her sister had written it and thought it was beautiful. She read through to the end and was happy to see I was the author. My writings are not meant for commercialism but they are inspired and from my heart to your heart, I hope you enjoy this one too.
I finish with this little statement: If you are blessed with your parents and/or your children and other members of your family, please take the time to spend time with them. I spent all of the time I could manage to visit my Dad and his wife Martha and I made the blessing sacrifice of my weekends to spend with Momma. If I could, I would walk my Momma holding her hand and show her the Christmas decorations and see that lovely smile but she celebrates Our Savior’s birthday with Him in Heaven.
