World Wide Unity’s poet laureate James Dillet Freeman (1912-2003) wrote the following poem about Christmas:

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 re-born.

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.

We can always choose to embrace hope, faith, peace, love, and joy in our lives, for infinite good and everlasting love is constantly being born in and through us. Let’s see if we can be aware of these qualities, and whatever day it is, we can say to ourselves, “There’s Christmas!” All it takes is wonderment, praise, and gratitude.
