Memories of Childhood Christmas

Sometimes I go back and read through my previously written posts…and I believe my words are still as fresh today as when I first wrote them. This is a poem I wrote a few years back. Every time I read it I am transported back to my vivid childhood memories of Christmas’ past.  Maybe you will be, too?

Christmas Memories

Joy to the World,

 

sky so bright.

 

Church lit at night

 

childhood delight.

 

Christmas songs,

 

I’ve known so long.

 

Family together,

 

in all kinds of weather.

 

Jumping up and down,

 

as snow hits the ground.

 

Christmas trees,

 

of all shapes and sizes.

 

Beautiful packages,

 

filled full of surprises.

 

Mom’s special albums,

 

of Nat King Cole,

 

Bing, and Sinatra,

 

their songs don’t grow old.

 

TV specials,

 

my sis and I watched.

 

Charlie Brown, The Grinch

 

and don’t forget Rudolph!

 

All these are wonderful,

 

and dear to my heart.

 

Memories  mean so much

 

never to part.

 

But, above all else

 

what means the most…

 

is the proclamation of

 

the heavenly host.

 

“Unto you,

 

a Savior is born.”

 

With those words, everything changed

 

from that night on.  —– Written by Dawn Gibson

 

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11 NIV
