Farewell 2018 – Welcome New Life


DSC_0042

‘Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse

He’s eating some crumbs from the day’s Christmas feast

There are cookies and biscuits, cheese crackers at least

 

The stockings are empty, the toys are in play

The parents exhausted and sleeping all day

Carols and movies are done for the year; farewell to the relatives

We’ve all shed a tear

They’ve driven and flown back home for a time

Next Christmas we’ll see them—celebrations sublime

 

But the meaning of Christmas still rings in our hearts

A birthday for Jesus is only the start

What if we could share all the love we’ve been given

Not only on Christmas since we’ve been forgiven

 

The New Year is coming within a few days

It’s never too late to live in new ways

Resolutions we’ve promised may flee out the door

Within a few months, we may be as before

 

But I’m grateful for Jesus.

His birth and his death give our lives meaning

A place in God’s presence; on His life, I’m leaning

So even though shopping is done for the season

Let’s keep in our hearts Jesus—the reason.

Wishing you and your families  a wonderful Christmas season and Happy New Year!
