Christmas is such a special time of the year. Many of us float through the holidays in search of a modern Norman Rockwell version of Christmas. I have often written of such yearnings within us. You may read my musings in True Gifts of the Heart, and my own updated version of a beloved poem, The (New) Night Before Christmas.

This year I found the poem below, written by Unity poet James Dillet Freeman. I was struck by his gentle wisdom and loving heart, and decided that you would be best served through his lovely words. So Merry Christmas to all– and may the loving breath of the Divine Creator imbue your home, and hearts, with peace and abiding good cheer.

If Every day Were Christmas

By James Dillet Freeman

If every day were Christmas,

how different life would be,

if not one day but all the year

were ruled by charity.

Had we the faith in miracles

a child has Christmas morn,

each day would be love’s manger

and Christ would be reborn

in us again to change and heal

our outworn wars and ways-–

had we a child’s or shepherd’s gift

for wonderment and praise!

Yet every day is Christmas

when we have learned to live

by love’s law, learned not how to get

but only how to give;

and like a child can wonder

and like a child can pray,

but have the grown-up wisdom

to give ourselves away.

centered inlove
