Take the "LIGHT" out and there's NO CHRISTmas!

T'was the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

See the PC Police had taken away,

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing,

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a 'Holiday'.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanza

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penney's and Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!

They don't know what they're missing

After the fight, they'll be hissing

and soon find out we were right

Then it's too late to accept the "LIGHT"

In the service of the Savior,

Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman

Take the "LIGHT" out and there's NO

Dear Trudy,
You said it as it is.. no LIGHT.. only darkness.. I have no idea how Christmas got changed into mostly santa claus and buying gifts.

The old saying, "JESUS is the reason for the season." I have never been fond of this saying, but it is so.

The poem you added on the bottom of the Blog is excellent..

May the Lord bless you and bless this BLOG.. and trusting that it
will touch people's lives and wake them up before it is too late.
Your friend in CHRIST,
