The Spirit of Christmas
written by: Shelly Wilson
A warmth in my heart arises a notch
As Christmas is near and winter does knock
With cinnamon smells and baked apple scents
Foaming hot joe and cider to sip.
When music does soar and leaps in the air
Jingle bells ring and hearts tend to care
When joy and laughter arise in one’s smile
Yet something still stirs a tear to my eye.
The man with no home or family to see
The child who’s alone no shoes on his feet
The lost and the lonely whose loved ones did leave
How can I too bring some Christmas to these?
The one who is saddened whose marriage dissolved
The woman depressed close to ending it all
The man who just lost his job in the Fall
Father, please help me give love to them all.
My heart it does swell with burdens Christ gives
Things to encourage are the smallest of gifts
Knowing a heart to give miracles “a go”
Ask our dear Jesus for each one He knows.
What can I then give to each in despair?
Some kindness and love that Christ says to share
The Spirit of Christmas where God gave His heart
By giving us Jesus…it’s where we must start.
