I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Memories

Remember the Christmas
when we searched for the hidden presents,
then tried to guess what surprises
they held, thinking Christmas was special
because of those gifts.
Yet, over the years I have
all but forgotten what those packages contained,
recognizing the treasure was not the presents,
nor the poignant memories we shared,
but in the love those gifts represented.
For Christmas was & is special
because of a very special love shown to us,
the greatest gift of all,
born in a stable stall,
Christ the Lord!
