Living in the Light


Christmas is the Season of Light


Of Christmas

Poem Copyrighted - Debbie Porter (2001)


"I have come into the world as a light, so no one who believes in me should stay in darkness."
~ John 12:46 NIV ~



The days go by so quickly,
Every season turns and then
Quite suddenly it's summer
And it's Christmas time again

Now I know that may seem strange
To those of you from northern parts
But Christmas in Australia
Warms much more than just our hearts!

As the days grow even longer
And the crickets start to sing
It's time for carols in the park,
Which is such an Aussie thing.

The children's smiles are beaming
'Cause that Day is coming near
But there's that added bonus
With the end of their school year!

The shopping's done, the gifts are wrapped
They're underneath the tree.
The expectation's building
But there's something wrong with me.

Amidst the preparations,
Hidden by the tinsel gold
The reason for the season
Has been left out in the cold.

But then I saw the coloured lights
Upon our Christmas tree
And wondered for a moment
What those lights were meant to be.

For Christmas is a time of light,
That's how it's always been.
With candles brightly burning
Making beautiful the scene.

As those globes continued blinking,
Dancing colours in the night,
I really got to thinking
And the answer came in sight.

For into a world of darkness
Came our Saviour long ago.
There in that stable lowly
Jesus' light began to glow.

From that time on the light of love
Has flowed from God to man
Rolling back the darkness
Bringing peace and life again.

The light of Christ's still shining,
It grows brighter every day.
But now it's carried in the hearts
Of those who walk His way.

So may this Christmas season
Cause your spirit just to soar,
With the light of Christ emblazoned
In your heart forever more.
