White Christmas

 
***********************************
**Unless we make Christmas an occasion
to share our blessings, all the snow in
Alaska won’t make it a White Christmas**
Bing Crosby

***********************************

 
A white Christmas can mean
 Much more than a song.
Much more than the snow
We’ve desired all yearlong.
 
A white Christmas can mean
A clean conscience, pure heart…
A right standing with God
And a sparkling new start.
 
A white Christmas can mean
A love for fellowman…
 A forgiveness of faults…
A held out helping hand.
 
A white Christmas can mean
The holiness of the Lord.
The peace of His presence
Placed on His Christmas card.
 
A white Christmas can mean
A long look at the cradle…
At the miraculous gift
Sent to Bethlehem's stable.
 
A white Christmas can mean
The uniqueness of flakes…
Knowing God is unique
And He died for our sakes.
 
A white Christmas can mean
Placing Christ at the top.
A hope that won’t quit
And a faith that won’t stop.
 
A white Christmas can mean
Being seen in His Light…
When you celebrate HIM
Then your Christmas IS white

~~Dedicated to Janet~~

~~Author's Note~~
This was inspired by one of the daily
thoughts written by my bishop. And I've
included the Bing Crosby version of
White Christmas...but I love Elvis'
music so......May your days be merry
and bright...and may all your
Christmases be WHITE.
 

Psalm 51:7
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow
 
Isaiah 1:18
"Come now, and let us reason together,"
says the Lord, "Though your sins are
 like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow;
 though They are red like crimson,
 They shall be as wool.
