Christmas Eve

Today marks Christmas the birth of Jesus Christ

A day for reflection a day that feels nice

A day of remembrance of Christmas past

A day of choosing what do you want to last


It’s a time for charting a course for the year

A time to celebrate joys that bring good cheer

The mask known as sadness can be sent away

As you engage communion on this sacred day


Give gifts to others acknowledge what’s whole

Bless hold cherish be grateful honor each soul

Let your beauty come forth please glow and shine

Let your proud expectations be reflected by mine


Let the joy of community touch your heart with joy

Let the love that is inside honor each girl and boy

Now’s the time for lessons listen to your deep voice

It will tell you next steps then rise and rejoice


Seize your path for the next year let it unfold and shine

It’s yours for the taking take yours I’ll take mine

When we honor our voices and follow our heart

Then we will honor spirit that is noble art


Jesus said we have power god is within

Each and every a deity let yours fill you to the brim

Let your abundant self guide each of your turnings

Let the voice of your wisdom counsel all of your yearnings


How do you celebrate Christmas?

What do you do that fills the soul of others?

That fills your soul?

How do you take sacred time to explore your deepest feelings?

How do you extend forgiveness to others?

How do you cleanse yourself for the coming year?
