What is Christmas

 


WHAT IS CHRISTMAS?: BY Helen Steiner Rice


Is it just a day at the end of the year?

A happy holiday filled with merry & good cheer

A season for presents both giving and receiving

A time to indulge in the pleasures of living


Are we lost to meaningless much muddled daze that

that covers our minds like a grey autumn haze.


Have we closed our hearts to God and His love?


Do we turn our eyes from “The bright star above”

Oh Father in Heaven, renew and restore the real

true meaning of Christmas once more.


So we can feel in our heart again that

peace on earth and good will to all men”


It is still a promise that man can claim if

He but seeks it in thy name”

    Blessings!
