Taking Christ out of CHRISTmas ~

Merry CHRISTmas ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

You can take Christ out of CHRISTmas,
by saying happy holidays . . .
you can omit Christ’s name
with any other merry phrase.

You can remove Christ’s name,
from your advertisements
you can skip Christ’s name
because of your entitlements.

You can refuse Christ’s name,
it is your prerogative and right
you can delete Christ’s name
in your yearly xmas fight.

But one thing you cannot do,
is take Christ away from me
for it is because of His name
from my sins I’m set free.

You can take Christ out of CHRISTmas,
by saying happy holidays . . .
you can omit Christ’s name
but my joy, it will not phase!

Isaiah 7:14

“Therefore the Lord himself
shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son, and shall call
his name Immanuel.”

What Christmas Isn’t ~

Tis the season
to be jolly . . . .
but don’t get caught
in all the folly.

For, it’s not about,
jingle bells
or dashing off
to all the sales

It’s not about,
the office party
or if to Aunt Sally’s
we’ll be tardy.

It’s not about,
the food we buy
or if we’ll make
pecan or rhubarb pie.

It’s not about,
all the lights
or if Uncle Joe
will start a fight.

It’s not about,
Santa or his sleigh
or how much this year
he will weigh.

It’s not about,
the presents we get
or the gifts we buy
putting us into debt.

It’s about Jesus,
the virgin Babe born
so long ago
one early morn.

It’s about love,
shinning from afar
it’s about the promise
of Jacob’s Star.

It’s about His light,
His life, His way . . .
that ‘s why we celebrate
CHRISTmas day!

What if There Was No CHRISTmas ~

Christmas Chaos byJeff Boriss free photo #2242

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no Babe lying in the manger
what if the Savior wasn’t born
to heal the world’s hurt and anger?

There would be no Good Friday,
no Palm Sunday or Resurrection Day
there would be no souls to show
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no freedom from our strife
no hope or any anticipation
of having a blissful eternal life?

There would be no everlasting joy,
no chance of a never-ending love
there would be no glorious meeting
with our Savior one day above.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no trust, no faith, no peace
no virgin birth, no Immanuel
so our pain and tears would cease?

There would be no Prince of Life,
no eternal Lord and King
there would be no motive
for the CHRISTmas songs we sing.

What if Jesus wasn’t born,
on CHRISTmas Day
what then would be the reason
to even celebrate today?
