I am refusing to be silent
About that silent night!
I’ll be voicing my opinion
Until they get the story right!
It is called the CHRISTmas story
Yet they’re Xing the Christ out!
I refuse to call it Xmas…
X is not what it’s about!
Because once upon a time there was…
No ifs…no buts…no maybe…
Born in the town of Bethlehem
A very special baby.
God was wrapped in human flesh…
Incubated by a Virgin.
Whose conception was created by
A Heavenly and earthly merging!
Begotten of the Holy Ghost…
An immaculate conception!
This was no ordinary birth…
Yet it has only known rejection.
Rejected by the ancient world…
He is still objected to today.
They’re protesting Merry CHRISTmas
In lieu of Happy Holiday!
Well, upon those dark and dreamless streets
Shone an everlasting Light!
And as long as there is breath in me
I’ll speak of that Silent Night!
Revisited Christmas 2014
~~Dedicated to Sandy~~
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning. Through him
all things were made; without him nothing was
made that has been made. In him was life,
and that life was the light of men. 5 The light
shines in the darkness, but the darkness
has not understood it.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling
among us. We have seen his glory,
the glory of the One and Only, who came from
the Father, full of grace and truth.
The truth is that without Christ’s nativity
there would be no Christmas. No Christmas
gifts to celebrate the gifts presented to the
Christ-child. No Christmas lights to celebrate
God’s light casting out the darkness. No evergreen
tree to represent everlasting life. No St.
Nicholas whose Christian life gave rise to the
legend of Santa Claus. No classic Christmas
novel like “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens.
Just think of all that would be missing if we fail
to greet one another with a “Merry Christmas.”
Jesus is the REASON for the season, and because
of that, I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
