Christmas — Post Partum Blues?

Day 2622: Waking up to the kids and Gkids this morning!

Scripture: For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Thoughts/questions:  May my cheesy symbolic poem encourage you!

Twas the day after Christmas and thru my spiritual house                                                         There was quite a letdown; I sort of feel like a louse.                                                                      The wrappings of presents are in the recycle bin,                                                                        Those presents – so many – that just might be a sin.

This morning is so quiet, with very few sounds being made,                                                       That great Christmas service; memories already beginning to fade.                                              Special time with family and friends, what mixed emotions they bring,                              Christmas carols soon gone, as New Year’s music begins to ring.

Yet today things seem different, like something went wrong;                                                Where’s the joy, where’s the peace; yes, where’s even my song.                                                       Is it because Christmas is over; no carols for another year?                                                            Or did I miss its true meaning, merely seeking after cheer?

The day before or after Christmas should still be the same,                                                             As to merely celebrate His birth is not why He came.                                                                     His life gives me hope; yesterday, today and forever.                                                                     The Mighty God is my God; a bond no one can sever!

Suggested prayer: Lord Jesus, may my faith and hope in You always be like it is on Christmas Day . . .
