Christmas is a very special time of year all around the world. It is a season of joy and filled with hope, excitement and anticipation. It is a time of giving and sharing with others. Love seems to bloom during the Christmas season and Christmas day our cup overflows with cheer. Christmas for most of us is a happy holiday filled with cheer and sharing and togetherness. What would happen if we spread all that love and togetherness, the cheer, the love and the hope all year, every day of the year?
SPREADING CHRISTMAS OUT ALL YEAR
If in our hearts we carried Christmas
everyday throughout the year,
we wouldn’t need a special holiday
to share and spread the cheer
and the message that is Christmas
would around the world shine clear.
We’d all know a lot more happiness
and real peace would appear
as we each keep on giving
and love our neighbor as our self,
showed genuine caring
and reached out with love to help,
if we really looked around us
and felt what others felt.
If we all stored up life’s goodness
and were to each more kind,
oh how sweet the blessings
in our life we’d find.
As we share God’s love and spirit
we’d find that life would be
much kinder when we’re not wrapped up
and tied up with all that “I” and “Me.”
Every day would be like Christmas,
good will and peace we’d find
when we share the Christmas spirit
and keep love in heart and mind.
Christmas wouldn’t be for just one day
and life would be filled with cheer
if we would share the love of Jesus
and spread Christmas out all year.
