A Christmas Poem by a St. James Member


                      A Christmas Poem 

The Christmas season is upon us and I want to know

How are you going to handle the extra-heavy load?

Will you let yourself get all worked up to a frazzle?

Or will you just enjoy all the razzle and dazzle


Of the twinkling lights and the Christmas carols too,

Or will you be overwhelmed by all you have to do?

As the days go by, will you be caught saying “Bah, humbug?”

Or will you take the time to give a much needed hug?


Will you look around and maybe not too far,

And see someone else much worse off than you are.

Remember, it’s not the number of gifts under the tree,

And it’s certainly not about Poor Little Ole Me.


It’s about helping your neighbor, a stranger, or a friend

And when Christmas is over, you’ll feel blessed, once again.
