Will You Have a Reluctant Christmas?

Will you have a reluctant Christmas?
Is what you want impossible this year?
Perhaps you can reach out to some others
and bring them some unexpected cheer. 

Often simple pleasures, a letter,
a song, a treat or meal that’s shared,
a little visit or a phone call
lets someone know you cared.

Anytime there’s a cloud of confusion
you have a Friend to set you free 
Give God thanks for all you can think of,
in childlike simplicity.  

Allow yourself a new beginning,
Let God’s love give you a new start;
Banish that reluctant Christmas,
Make a celebration in your heart.
