  Twas the Night Before Christmas

  By Debra Coe

  Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

  With thoughts of St. Nicholas and what hed bring there.

  The children were nestled all snug in their beds

  Without a moment of bowing their heads.

  The scriptures were thrown on the shelves without care.

  Little hope of remembering the precious words there.

  And I with the tinsel and Ma with the lights

  Had prepared for Christmas with no thoughts of Christ.

  We had snowmen and elves and of course Santa Claus.

  We thought we had decorated without any flaws.

  For weeks wed prepared with lots of traditions,

  Cards of course and so much work in the kitchen.

  Wed been to parties galore all dressed up in frills

  And spent hours at stores to get the best deals.

  The lights on the house were all flashing with fun

  Lots of presents under the tree; we thought we were done.

  We thought not of the needy, nor help to a stranger,

  We thought not of the poor, and not of a manger.

  No angels were singing in our house that night

  We hadnt invited them so none were in sight.

  The real spirit of Christmas was absent as well.

  For only Christs spirit will make our hearts swell.

  And I wondered that Christmas how it could be

  That the Christmas spirit wasnt stronger in me

  Why Christmas didnt seem as it was in the past

  Why Christmas just came and went by very fast.

  When out of my wondering mind did appear.

  Some scriptures Id learned as a child so dear.

  Of a loving kind Father who gave His own Son

  God saw all our needs and chose Christ as the one.

  Christ has the power to serve us so well

  Healing the things that can lead to spiritual jail

  I could change if I wanted with eyes that could see

  Come Follow Me, was His only plea.

  I decided to change and begged forgiveness please

  And asked how to serve Him while down on my knees

  Serve others and do it as if unto Him

  Was the answer I heard in the sound of a hymn

  I rushed from my bed and I got scriptures for all.

  So we could start Christmas just right after all.

  So Christmas day we planed for the months yet to come

  Of people wed serve and we talked of the fun

  Now Angels are singing in our home today

  We finally invited them to come our way.

  And Christmas is lasting the whole long year through,

  With scriptures, prayer and devotion His spirit grew.
