Staying Close at Christmas

As Winter chills, everything stills, 
 And we’re all staying inside.
The birds have flown to places unknown, 
 The leaves have fallen and dried.

We’re tucked away, and we may stay, 
 From people far apart,
But love is lawed by the power of God, 
 When Jesus is in our hearts.

No distance or span or power of man,
 Can separate us from His love.
This Christmas season, let Him be the reason,
 And gift we’re dreaming of.

  1. This is beautiful Brandon! Exactly why I love Christmas so much. It’s not because everything is easy. Sometimes the dead of winter is such an accurate description of how I feel. And yet, you said it, nothing can separate us from Jesus’ love.

    1. Thank you so much. I’m sorry it has taken so long to respond. For some reason, your comment went to my spam folder (as did a couple others). I guess I’ll need to start checking that more often! I appreciate your comments and I hope you enjoy my other posts.
