CULTIVATING HIS GIFT

For unto us
The Christ Child is born
His peace and love
Enter our hearts
Christ comes not
Just once a year
But every day
Our hearts can accommodate
His love
A miracle of divine origin
Transforming our hearts
Softening hard feelings
And melting hate
Originating acts of kindness
Propelling us
To go out of our way
To serve those less fortunate

His love
Now our constant companion
Not easily uprooted
From our hearts
A new life
Protected by
Our loving maintenance
Of His gift
By our humble acceptance
He is our Creator
Due all attention,
Honor, and worship

      James,
      Thank you for the kind and generous comment. I have written some poetry before. I didn’t know how this one would be received, though. I’m happy you liked it because I value your judgement. I’ll certainly continue with crafting more poems as the Spirit leads. May God bless you richly in this New Year.
      Betsy
