Merry Christmas!

I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I know not all of you follow the Children's Learning Activities blog, so I thought I would post this poem I wrote here, too. I am by no means a poet--I am a technical writer! But I wrote this so I could have something to teach my children about the symbols of Christmas:

Remember Christmas
by Valerie L. Plowman

Red reminds of the blood He spilt
to wash away and cleanse all of our guilt

White is for His actions, most pure.
Through sinless perfection, He did endure.

Green is for the life eternal
we can obtain through our Lord supernal.

The star shines like the one so bright
that twinkled above that first Christmas night.

The fir tree is for many things:
the tree of Jesse--the father of kings,
and for the needles pointing to the Lord--
that little babe we all adored.

The wreath shows one eternal round;
the begin' of the Lord cannot be found.

The lights remind us that this babe
is the light of the world, and born to save.

The candy cane is for the crook;
not one sheep or lamb the shepherd forsook.

The Christmas bells we love to ring
proclaim joy! The birth of a newborn king.

These symbols remind us that we,
more like the three wise men all now should be.

Earnestly seeking to find the new babe
who humbly in a manger laid.
