The Christmas Cheer

The Christmas cheer is spreading
excitement is creeping in
we’re dreaming of sugar and spice
Christmas presents of every kind.

Smiles are on our faces
as we prepare for the holiday
we’re laughing and we’re singing
to special Christmas songs.

‘Comfy cozy are we,’
cuddling up on the couch
drinking cocoa and snacking
on candy canes.

Driving around
to look at Christmas lights
strung atop the trees,
we’re happy and we’re ready…

for the best day of the year
the holiday we look forward to
Jesus’ coming is remembered
the Christmas cheer is finally here.

The True Meaning of Christmas

My sister used this poem for Poetry Jam at our school, and it really touched my heart. It is so true and I think we could all benefit from taking a moment to absorb what it is saying.

In today’s day and time,
it’s easy to lose sight,
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.

When we go shopping,
We say “How much will it cost?”
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.

Amidst the tinsel and glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
born on a night so cold.

The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the child
Whose bed was made of hay.

In reality,
When we look into the night sky,
We don’t see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,
Whose love, the world would know.
