The Spirit of Christmas

The Spirit of Christmas in me and you.

If Everyday Were Christmas
James Dillet Freeman

If every day were Christmas,
how different life would be,
if not one day but all the year
were ruled by charity.
Had we the faith in miracles
a child has Christmas morn,
each day would be love’s manger
and Christ would be reborn
in us again to change and heal
our outworn wars and ways-–
had we a child’s or shepherd’s gift
for wonderment and praise!
Yet every day is Christmas
when we have learned to live
by love’s law, learned not how to get
but only how to give;
and like a child can wonder
and like a child can pray,
but have the grown-up wisdom
to give ourselves away.
