What Christmas Means To Me

WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS TO ME

The brisk, quiet, star-lit nights
With people on the go
The hustle and bustle of shopping
While praying for it to snow

Decorating the tree and the house
A Nativity Scene on the lawn under the sky
Angels placed all around it
For all to see, who come by

Baking cookies and other treats
Addressing cards to send to friends
It can be busy and hectic
But you hope it will never end

Everyone is usually happy
With smiles all around
People greet others cheerfully
It is such a joyous sound

Children are filled with anticipation
Wondering what gifts they might get
Parents hide these treasured packages
So the children won't see them yet

Many parties are held
Where people get together for fun
They talk about how exhausted they'll be
Once the season is done

People go off their diets
And eat much more than they should
It's difficult to pass up the food
Because all of it is so good

People start getting serious
As the special day draws near
Carolers sing wonderful songs
They are a joy to hear

The special day known as Christmas
Is the anniversary of Jesus' birth
It's a day that is held most holy
All around the earth

As we gather in churches on Christmas
Remember to thank God above
For sending His Son to redeem us
And filling our hearts with love

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS

Just Beautiful Beverly! This is what Christmas means to me also!
Your poem gets me wanting to put our tree and trimmings up today. You know, it also made me think: Since I've been a Christian, I have been in the Christmas spirit all year long. I want everyone to have that same assurance of JESUS in their heart! I love you and see Him shinning in you dear sister of mine. Yes, Happy Birthday JESUS! and Merry Christmas everybody! -Dawn

Oh Angel Beverly A very beautiful Christmas poem indeed. Only thing I don't like is that it comes too fast and passes by too fast, and all of the comercialism, but you have captured the true meaning of Christmas in this poem, the rememberance of the bith of our Lord Jesus. Thanks for sharing, and you didn't even have to send me a link this time. God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Aaawww, is it that time of the year already? You know I always wish that Christmas never ends! Your poem gives out the true spirit of Christmas and it's pure nostalgic. I can vividly imagine the scenes passing through my head for every line written in your poem! I loved your poem so much, Angel. It's as angelic as you and baby Jesus. Thanks for sharing. God bless you and all those you love.

Thank you, to one and all who have stopped by to read my poem and left a delightful comment. I am very pleased you liked my poem. All praise must go to our Lord, since He is the one who always gives me the words to write. If this poem has made you smile and warmed your hearts, then it has accomplished its job.

As we get closer to Christmas, I hope the joy of the season will fill your hearts with song, as you, once again, welcome Jesus into your lives. Have a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with numerous blessings from above. Remember....every time you hear a bell, it means an Angel has received their wings!!

Love,
Beverly
