Thank you for a lovely holiday poem filled with truth and hope.
Hey! That's what my preacher said today in his sermon. (But he didn't rhyme or say it so gracefully.) Great messsage. Great poem!

The Christmas message of hope comes through well here, reminding us of all the reasons not to fear. I did think the rhymes and rhythm were a bit forced in places though.
I like the flow of this poem. It was easy and enjoyable to read.

Thanks,VernaJ...needed this today, especially this stanza:

His Spirit now abides within,
And though we know not where or when,
We do know Heíll return again
To take His followers with Him.

He gives peace and hope.

Especially this year we need to keep our eyes on the Creator and not the creation - HE is hope and you have aptly written that here.

I love this message. I could hear it over and over and over, but you share it best. YOu managed to get inside the situations and scenarios of a good many people, which is a gift.
The holidays are not a bright time for everyone, so we must remember His hope. Love it.
