Merry Christmas! Yes, it is!






…not because our lives are perfect
But He is!

…not because our gifts bring deliverance
But He does!

…not because stocking-stuffers fulfill
But He will

…not because of earthly peace
But because of heavenly peace

Because
He was born
To die
So we may live
Forever!

Merry Christmas!

  1. Thank you, Merry Christmas to you, Janet.
    FYI "Rattle" http://www.rattle.com/poetry/ is "currently seeking work by “Poets of Faith” for the next fall’s issue—that means poets for whom faith is a central part of their life and/or their writing. To submit, all you have to do is follow the regular guidelines, but explain how you’re a “Poet of Faith” with a sentence or two in your cover letter. Deadline: April 15th." I sure hope you'll submit :-)
