noel*The Meaning of Christmas

Far away in Bethlehem, a Baby Boy was born;
Born with neither riches nor with fame,
Yet Wise Men came from all around to bring to Him their gifts,
And peace was felt by all who heard His name.

Angels watched Him as He slept, and gently rocked His bed;
Their voices singing softly in His ear;
His Mother and His Father both gave thanks to God above
For the greatest gift of all, their Son, so dear

They knew His life upon this earth would not be filled with wealth,
They also knew He would encounter strife;
But most of all, they knew that He would be a loving Child,
And teach the love of God throughout His life.

At Christmas, as we celebrate this Birth of Jesus Christ,
Let's keep in mind the truth of Christmas Day;
For it's not the Christmas wrappings, nor the gifts that lie within,
But our gift of love to others in every way.


Christmas is a Time for Love

Christmas is a time for Love; a time for Joy and Peace;
A time to trim the Christmas Tree and a time to stuff the geese.
It's a time when we can come together, however far or near;
To shed a little hope into a world of sorrow and fear.

Yet Christmas could be all year 'round, if only we would try
To gently wipe an old man's brow or soothe a baby's cry.
If we could smile throughout the year as we do on Christmas Day;
Just think what happiness we'd shed along life's weary way.

To give a gift of Hope to one who otherwise has none;
To be a Friend to somebody whom everyone else has shun.
To be Forgiving of our faults, and of our sisters and our brothers;
To Live in Peace and Harmony with ourselves and with each other.

Ah, don't you see that Christmas is more than opening up the gifts;
It's more than singing Christmas Carols and rolling in big snow drifts.
It's a feeling that can stay with you throughout each day, all year;
And all it takes is a loving heart.....and a sensitive little tear.


Santa's Lap

I like to visit Santa Claus
When Christmastime is near.
It's fun to climb up on his lap
And whisper in his ear.

He says, "My dear, have you been good?
Have you done what Mother said you should?
Do you brush your teeth and hair each day?
Are you kind to others when you play?

I listen to each question
And answer every one.
Although I am ashamed to say
I must say no to some.

But Santa never scares me;
He doesn't even scold.
He just says, "Try again, my dear,
You're a fine lad, I am told."

Gee, I like to visit Santa Claus
When Christmastime is near.
It's fun to climb up on his lap
And whisper in his ear


Christmas Queries

Mother, why do Christmas trees
And Christmas gifts and melodies
Here and all around the earth
Celebrate the Christ child's birth?

Christmas trees are lighted for
The Savior's wondrous brilliant star
And gifts we give to everyone
Because our father gave His son.

Songs are sung, for on that night
When earth was bathed in holy light
Jesus came - so long ago -
And angels sang to tell us so


Christmas Star

A diamond shines no brighter
than that lovely Christmas star.
It shines in all its brilliance;
it's seen from near or far.
A symbol of the Christ child
as He lay upon the hay,
It tell to all the waiting world
a King was born that day.

O Bethlehem Star keep shining -
give us faith and hope and love.
Keep our thoughts forever turning
to the Savior up above.
Give us strength and hope and courage
to do our best by far
And never falter in our faith
as we watch that Christmas star



Blue Day - "Put a blue candle in the window for Christmas"

In memory and honor of the men and women of law
enforcement who risk their lives every day for our safety.

May it never be forgotten as you patrol your "beats"
that you are human too, simply protecting our streets.
You close your eyes each night when you fall asleep,
praying to survive the challenges we know that you will meet.

Your oath is very sacred, you are honorable and true
The uniform is the same, brown, gray, black or blue.

The morals and values you represent are ones chosen by God,
You must do your best to succeed, to shine in your job.

The people of the community rely on you to protect,
They may not always show it, but for you they have respect.

The dangers and the pressures that face you are present every day,
And our thoughts and prayers are with you every step of the way.

The support may seem very minimal from those of us out here,
But know in your heart that for most of us, one thing is very clear……

You are a law enforcement officer, a cop, a "savior in blue”
No greater respect can be shown for anyone like the respect we have for you.

We may not always show it, but on this "Blue Day",
Know that our prayers are with you always, as you keep danger away.

My Dad

This is not really a christmas poem
but there is a lot of meaning to be found here.
Read, think and enjoy.. Webbie :-)

Leave me alone, dad;
Why do you pressure me so ?
I'm on the phone, dad;
No homework today, so go.

Your pressure is great, dad;
I don't know what to do.
I often think it is hate, dad,
The pressure on me from you.

I try the best I can, dad,
But it still isn't enough.
I feel like I'm the only man, dad
That has it this tough.

You do not comprehend, dad,
The way I feel.
You are unwilling to bend, dad;
Its almost unreal.

Please lighten up, dad;
I'm only human.
No one can disrupt, dad;
My love for you, man.

But this tears at me, dad;
I tell you now
So will you please be, dad,
A much better pal.
