No to Holiday Blues

The word of The LORD shall stand forever

The leaves have fallen seasons change is here

Thanksgiving now over Christmas holiday so near

Remember the reason and be fully present

Never give up pull back or become hesitant

 

The holiday blues are sure to pass you by

If you’re determined to do this and not just try

For try never accomplished not one thing

Just fills us full with regret leaves us wondering

 

The spirit of the holidays is for pouring out love

Just as we were shown from heaven above

Rejoicing and sharing out of our abundance

It’s the measure of our heart – never redundant

 

If you find you are lonely and start to feel blue

Look around and you’ll find someone who

Has need of much and is lacking provision

Then simply turn and make this decision

 

It is more blessed to give than it is to receive

It works different in ‘The kingdom’ for those who believe

For when we love and do good to all people

We act as the church not merely a building with a steeple

Matthew 25:40 NIV

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

 

Galatians 6:10 NIV

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

 

Hebrews 13:2

Don’t neglect to show hospitality, for by doing this some have welcomed angels as guests without knowing it.

 

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom!

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
