The annual anticipation has culminateFor at least a month many were elated
By the impending celebration of the birth of a baby boy
Or is that the real reason?
The trees, inflatables and lights galore
Stockings, sweaters and so much more
Shopping and Christmas movies 24/7
But now that it’s over what does all that matter?
Seems our focus is pulled in so many ways
We can watch TV or stay online for days
People might be all around us
But that doesn’t keep us from loneliness
As we begin to un-decorate from the season
Can we be intentional about our reasons
For the gifts, the cards and recognition
Perhaps as we return to the busyness of life
Our daily routines and unavoidable strife
May we realize that this is when the work begins
To make life better wherever we can.
For isn’t that the reason God came to earth
And came to life in human birth?
To make us one with Him
And make life better for those around us?
‘Tis true it’s better to give than receive
But can we for one moment truly believe
The work Jesus started in His 33 years
Will drive out darkness and many fears
There are no limits when we expand and grow
What He started in us so long ago
Let’s bring peace, harmony and love
And make this world more like heaven above.
Peace, love and blessings,
