Poem: The Christmas Star


My intent for Sundays during Christmas in July is to share meaningful Christmas poems I've found.  In looking through an older Christmas book, I recently came upon this lovely poem by Mary Garren. 

The Christmas Star

May the light that shone 
From the Christmas Star 
On that night so long ago
Fall on you this Christmas night 
And set your face aglow.
May it shine from your eyes.
May it rest in your mind.
May it burn in your spirit bright.
May the Peace it spoke to a weary world
Bring joy to your heart tonight.
 ~ Mary Garren

Truly, we have so much to be thankful for.  The world is weary today just as it was at the time of Jesus' birth.  And He offers the only way to lasting peace and joy.  May we reflect on that today and be ready to share this blessed hope with others.

  2. Beautiful poem and lovely scene. It makes me think of a sleigh ride in Vermont or New Hampshire - something I've always wanted to do.

    1. Oh, I hope that sometime you can do that, Pamela! We have been on several sleigh rides in New Hampshire and have enjoyed every one.
