‘Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house,
Our spirits were lifted, our steps had a bounce.
Not the usual Christmas, our gathering small,
But the joy in our glad hearts could fill up a mall.
As we packed decorations, we had a bright thought,
Keep the Christ of Christmas first and do what He taught.
We’ll ring in the new year, grateful indeed,
And serve the dear Savior in word, mind, and deed.
Because Christmas is more than a date on a page,
It’s more than the parties or plays on a stage.
Christmas reminds us of the birth of our Savior,
His sacrifice treasured more than gifts and a manger.
Throughout this new year, we’ll share His love,
And worship the Messiah, God’s redemptive plan from above.
The simple message of John 3:16 still rings clear and true. God’s abundant love compelled Him to give His one and only Son so that when we believe we’ll have life everlasting!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Rom. 6:23, NIV.
God bless you and Happy 2023!!
