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,
We’d keep Christ in Christmas, not just things store-bought.

We’ll ring in the new year, grateful indeed,
To serve the dear Savior in both words and in deed.

Because Christmas is more than a date on a page,
It’s more than a Santa or plays on a stage.

Christmas reminds us of the birth of our Savior,
His sacrifice treasured more than gifts in a manger.

Throughout this new year, we’ll live with His love,
And worship Jesus, God’s 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!

  1. I love this poem and the reminder that the wondrous gift of our Savior’s birth should be carried with us throughout the year.

    May you have a Happy and Successful New Year with an abundance of Blessings!

  2. Good job of bringing a smile to our lips and a message to our hearts:)

    I also appreciated Dave’s passage from Luke. God was faithful to answer Simeon’s prayers and dreams.

  3. This is so good that I have to add my favorite Week After Christmas quote from Luke, when old Simeon sees the baby.

    Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace,
    according to thy word:
    30 for mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
    31 which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
    32 a light to lighten the Gentiles,
    and the glory of thy people Israel.

    (True Christmas scriptures must be in KJV.)

    1. Amen!! Funny, I reread this portion of Scripture yesterday and just had to marvel at who Simeon was in and to the Lord!! Thank you for this reminder, Dave!! 🙂
