Merry Christmas // A Christmas Poem

Hello and merry Christmas, everyone! How is your Christmas day going?

I am having a lovely day so far, just relaxing and spending time with my family. I am not going to do a big post for today (and I’m not sure I’ll post anything tomorrow) but I thought that I’d pop in here and wish everyone a joyous Christmas day!

I also decided to share a little poem, written by my younger self. Keep in mind that I was probably about seven or eight when this was written and I didn’t know a lot about poem writing, so it’s definitely not the best, but I just wanted to share something about the true meaning of Christmas, and why we celebrate this lovely season. Enjoy!

When fall is gone, and winter’s here,

I know Christmas is very near.

We put up the tree, and light the lights,

Whose soft glow looks so pretty in the dark night.

On Christmas morning, you may see

Many gifts under the tree.

But, make sure not to forget:

The reason of Christmas is not the gifts.

Jesus was born on Christmas night.

In a world full of darkness, He became our light!

This is a beautiful thing to remember. Sure, presents are exciting, and baking cookies are fun, and all of these festivities seem to spread the joy of Christmas.

But, what are we really celebrating? Jesus’ birth! The coming of our Savior! To me, that is more exciting, more joyful than anything else. Just something to reflect upon.

Merry Christmas again; I hope your day is full of love, peace, and joy, family and friends!


A Fall Poem

Hello everybody! I hope your day is going well so far! 😃

So, I wrote my monthly wrap-up yesterday, and I thought I was supposed to post it today. But, when I looked at my calendar, I’d written that that post would go live on the 31st of October, so I didn’t have a post for today.

No worries, though! I was looking through some old posts from when I first started my blog, and I stumbled upon a fallish poem. And, what better time to re-share it than now, in the middle of autumn?

Just be aware that I wrote this poem when I was about nine, and I don’t know a lot about poem writing, so it’s not the best. But, I do like it, and I thought I’d share it! Enjoy!

Fall Poem by Rebekah

Leaves are falling all around,

Leaves are falling on the ground,

The leaves turn yellow, red, and brown,

As they all tumble down.

The trees are pretty with their colorful leaves,

Such a beautiful picture to receive.

The firs and pines are lovely too,

Next to the maples with their golden hue.

Fall looks like a picture from a book;

It’s so pretty you just have to look.

The most gorgeous time of the year is fall,

When the leaves dance up and down like they’re having a ball.

How did you like it? How is your fall going so far? I’d love to chat in the comments!

Thank you for reading! I’ll see y’all next week with a monthly wrap-up for October! Bye for now!
