Keep Christmas In America

KEEP CHRISTMAS IN AMERICA

By Sue Charles

Yes, it’s Christmas in America! Excitement fills the air!

But Christmas Trees and Manger Scenes cause tension everywhere.

The Atheists build signs of hate and post them in plain view,

And cause a stir of stress and fear – but this is nothing new.

 

They use the Christmas season – meant for peace on earth, good will,

And turn it upside down with all their hate and threats, but still

The people keep on singing, as shopping they will go,

Tuning out each hostile voice meant to make the crushing blow

 

The hate-filled voices of the few don’t mean we all must bow

To their ridiculous demands that say all good must go.

We must not melt in fear and shame when the godless few

Stomp their feet in tantrums, as if they were only Two. 

 

Throughout the ages many tried to crush Christmas altogether,

But the remnant of truth will always keep God’s work forever.

So, celebrate what’s right and true; and kindness, hope and joy

That’s meant for hearts of young and old, for every girl and boy.

 

This nation is a light of hope, a beacon far and near.

We must stand tall, and sing, and pray and even shed a tear

For those who seek to destroy us all, our freedoms and our land.

And everyone who sees our flag and covers heart with hand.

 

We pray a blessing on our people, nation and our land

And keep our hope in God above to watch over as we stand

In courage and in strength, committing ourselves to good

And lend a hand to those less blest, as every person should.

 

So, when the hateful few shout out their message dark and drear,

Just keep in mind that Christmas is a special time of year

To celebrate the Christ child’s birth, to spread the good word too

That all can have that joy and peace with spiritual renew.

 

So, sing the carols, tie the bows and light the Christmas tree,

Say “Merry Christmas” in the mall, the neighborhood, and street.

Keep Christmas in America, hear Choirs far and wide,

Proclaim the season’s hope and peace, and joy of Christmas tide.

Wealth, the Essence of Time!

Magnificant Hawaii Sunrise
 

WEALTH, the ESSENCE of TIME!

  Our Time is of irretrievable worth,

Used well it can engender wealth;

But when it’s spent only on things of earth,

We’re robbed by old Lucifer’s stealth!

 ~ 

We’re blest at birth with a life-full of time,

Only God knows how long to last,

So use it wisely in life’s daily climb,

To have no regrets when it’s past!

~

   Awesome respect for the Creator’s Word

Is where knowledge and wisdom start,

So study the Bible, your mind to gird,  

And take all its lessons to heart! 

~

   Covet most dearly the joy of the Lord,

In His presence, you’ll find it There!

His Word take in hand, your defensive Sword,

Great wisdom with others to share!

   ~

The blessing of God is what makes one rich,

No sorrow He adds to the sum.

Not by our own wisdom or cunning wits,

By His might we will overcome!
