“On This Day”~A Christmas Poem

On this day

We remember the poor.

We open the doors

Of our homes and hearts

To let loved ones in.

 

On this day

We  give more than we receive.

We open our hands

And stretch our faith,

Helping our fellow neighbor.

 

On this day

We put our differences aside.

We open our minds

To the freedom of forgiveness

And the gift of grace.

 

Let this day

Last longer than just a meal.

Let this day

Become our anthem.

 

As we sing of the King

Who made Himself small,

To give us new life

On this day–

 

And for all eternity.
