Christmas Changes Everything

Yes, indeed, Christmas changes everything. One of the things it’s going to change around my house is my schedule. I’ll be taking a break from blogging but will plan to return with my regular posts on Jan. 4th. I hope to post a few holiday photos during the break so you might check in from time to time. May you and yours have a happy, happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year — but first, please be blessed as you read my Christmas poem for this year. Merry Christmas!

Christmas Changes Everything

I love it when the seasons change
Whether winter, summer, fall, or spring,
And let’s not forget the Christmas season
For Christmas changes everything.

No other season transforms lives
Quite like Christmas does each year,
It alters everything we do
And turns our thoughts towards Christmas cheer.

We trim our homes with holiday beauty
We thrill in becoming Santa’s elves,
Our spirits soar to merry music,
With cookies and candies we treat ourselves.

These are just ways we celebrate
The night darkness was shattered by Light,
That holy first Christmas that changed everything
Keeps us rejoicing day and night.

The Light who forever changed the world
Longs to be our Savior and King,
To make the difference in your life and mine—
For Christmas changes everything.

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light…For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…” Isaiah 9:2a, 6a KJV
