Poem of the week Christmas

INCREASED spending, getting in debt.

Consumerism today’s religion.

Christmas’ true meaning, we forget.

Giving because it’s expected

Regardless of circumstance

Christmas madness, it’s accepted.

Unable to imagine another way

A simple remembrance

Christ’s birthday.

Giving is good,

God gave his son.

Born to die for everyone.

Not just for Christmas,

We can give each day.

Loving others in a practical way.
