Christmas in every room

By: Carole L. Haines 

I brought home my tree from the old place where it stood 

I won’t be there to work each day, anymore 

Dusted it off and removed the old things 

Replaced them with Nativities to recall His Grace 

Star at the top to remind me He came 

And the world, once languishing, never the same 

Lights of all colors to remind me His hand  

Created all things around and inside 

A drum inspires worship, in this heart of fear 

Reminding me Jesus is forever near 

Wrapped gifts will tell of what forever is mine 

He has found me at last and will transform me in time 

A love come down to earth as a Babe 

This love will not tarnish, give up, or fade 

A place at the table in The Kingdom of God 

And a shepherd for simplicity of heart and mind. 

Yes, now I have Christmas in every room 

The Inn was too full, but I will sing these old tunes  

Of O Holy Night, and We Three Kings from afar 

Merry Christmas, Dear Believers 

May you be Blessed one and all. 

So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them. (Luke 2:16-20)
