A Perfect Gift For Christmas - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




A Perfect Gift For Christmas

by: Susan Y. Nikitenko
December 20th, 2010

Tired, weary from trav'ling;
Homeless and on their own.
Needing so, a place of rest;
They felt so alone.

Mother with child, suffering;
Needing a place to lay.
The new born king would come;
Born to the world that day.

No room was found in the inn;
No shelter from the night.
But God provided a star;
And many followed the light.

Though it seemed a need unmet;
God provided that day.
A stable, a manger bed;
And a soft place to lay.

He sent angels to shepherds;
To announce this great birth.
A birthday celebration;
The day God came to earth.

Emmanuel was His name;
The Christ, the new born King.
Jesus, promised child of God;
A perfect offering.

God provided the angels;
God provided the praise.
Glory to God in the highest;
The greatest of birthdays.

If God so celebrated;
The birth of Christ the King.
If angels glorified Him;
And many heard them sing.

If wise men followed the star;
Baring gifts of great worth.
Should we not celebrate;
The day that Christ came to earth?

Is He not worth the honor?
For He was born for us.
Wasn't He a beautiful gift;
A perfect gift for Christmas?

Our lights and our candles;
Our carolers praising.
Our pageantries of Christmas;
Our instruments raising.

The bells and the whistling;
Joyful songs always sung.
And Christmas decorations;
Swooping, twinkling and swung.

The evergreen and it's lights;
The Christmas story read.
A birthday celebration;
A cake of gingerbread.

If wise men followed the star;
Baring gifts of great worth.
Should we not celebrate;
The day that Christ came to earth?

Is He not worth the honor?
For He was born for us.
Wasn't He a beautiful gift;
A perfect gift for Christmas?

This skit was designed to require minimal prep and rehearsal! Uses eleven or more people, and can include audience if not enough kids. It teaches a lesson about the busy-ness of the gifting season. The perfect gift is, of course, the Savior, and the nativity is the basis of the skit.

Christmas Without Christ - By: Jerry Bouey




Christmas Without Christ

If we take Christ out of Christmas
What's there left to do?
We have all the tinsel and the presents -
But we don't have You-know-who.

If we ban all the Christmas songs
That, to some, may slightly offend,
Then we'd have to remove the Nativity scene...
Tell me - where would it end?

If we couldn't worship Christ this Christmas,
What's there left to celebrate?
All we have left is Santa Claus.
We've sold out - is it too late?

If we couldn't have the Prince of Peace,
Then our peace would vanish soon.
All our fondest dreams would lie in ashes
While we all sing empty tunes.

If we had nothing left to offer
But a jolly fat man in red,
Then Christmas couldn't be called Christmas,
And our hope would soon be dead.

If we take Christ out of Christmas,
Then what would there be?
A world in need of a Saviour
But they've left Him no place to be.


December 13th, 1994
Jerry Bouey

Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.
Acts 4:12

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him,
and given Him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of things in heaven, and things in earth,
and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:9-11





Note:
I am not for nativity scenes, as I am against pictures/images of Jesus Christ. I wrote this poem as a fairly young Christian - but the point still applies today: If we let the world remove all traces of the reason for the season (ie. the Lord Jesus Christ and the message of His free gift of salvation - whether in sermons or songs) at "Christmas" (when we are professing to worship the Lord and celebrate His birth - which was essential in His coming and dying for our sins on the cross), then what do we have left?

How Many Children? - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




How Many Children?

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
December 9, 2010

While standing looking out my window;
An early Christmas snow is falling.
And I know that very, very soon;
Family loved ones will be calling.

I see the cardinals and the blue jays;
Shining like Christmas bulbs in the trees.
A natural kind of decoration;
On the wintry slopes of fantasies.

My mind wanders into Christmas past;
And the many joys as a small girl.
With my brother and both my sisters;
A giggling Christmas and bows with swirls.

Animated fun and spins spun;
Snowflakes of many shapes and sizes.
Pretty frosted cookies with sprinkles.
Stockings filled with goodies and prizes.

The stories of Christmas imagined;
Like frosty gliding across the snow.
And the old cartoons of yesteryear;
And not to mention the mistletoe.

The story of Jesus being born;
And all the Christmas angels singing.
Christmas costumes, halos, wings and robes;
Roles to play and Christmas bells ringing.

Childhood memories and laughter parade;
In the painted pictures of my mind.
all those special moments and smiles;
I've seemed to forget and left behind.

Like curling up on my daddy's lap;
hugging my favorite teddy bear.
My mother's warm comfort , love and care;
In just taking time to comb and curl my hair.

The feeling of love in a child's heart;
When time and attention is given.
That feeling of I'm special, I'm loved;
And when I mess up I'm forgiven.

I hope my children know their so loved;
And that they are loved, no matter what.
And that my door is always open;
And that my heart, though hurt, won't shut.

How many children must long after love;
But have no mother to console them?
How many children only have fear;
Because daddy is drinking again?

How many children are without Christmas;
Without stockings, without shoes or care?
How many children have no bears to hug;
How many children have no one there?

I have loved ones coming for Christmas;
and I have childlike memories to share.
In my smallest years I've had comfort;
In the arms of a mom and dad who cared.

Children with hungry souls and minds;
Hungering for a mothers affection;
Need Christmas dreams and times of laughter;
And belly's filled with satisfaction.

Needing Christmas joys and Christmas toys;
Coats with buttons, with scarves and some gloves;
Exciting stories of Christmas day;
Memories, comfort, and plenty of love.

How many children? How many?

The Bible tells the story;
Of our Savior sent from glory.
And how the angels praised Him;

A Christmas Parade - by: Susan y Nikitenko

Rejoice images


This poem is about a real planned out Christmas parade.


A Christmas Parade

by: Susan y Nikitenko
November 29th 2010

Men dressed like toy soldiers;
Stand tightly in a row.
Holding forth their trumpets;
To start evening show.

People gather together;
For the festivity.
While children dress in costume;
For the nativity.

Christmas trees are lit up;
Twinkling lights dance with song.
Violins are playing;
All strings play along.

Five beautiful white sleighs;
With all the bells ringing.
With decorated horses;
fun, romance and singing.

All for just ten dollars;
Romance, laughter and smiles.
Husbands, wives and sweethearts;
Line up, for nearly two miles.

Garlands, wreaths and tinsel;
Decorate all the streets.
While holiday venders;
Sell hot cocoa and treats.

The soldiers blow their horns;
The angels start to sing.
They prance across the stage;
With tinsel on their wings.

Mary holds the Christ child;
While Joseph stands beside.
A little cow so shy;
Patters by wants to hide.

There's hundreds of people;
A bright candlelight sea.
Quiet moments of prayer;
A Christ filled Christmas Eve

Then way up the roadway;
The floats start to appear.
Carolers are singing;
Is that Santa I hear?

A sleigh filled with goodies;
A jolly Ho Ho Ho.
All the children cheering;
And Santa's rosy glow.

Then the marching bands play;
With their horns and their drums.
"The Little Drummer Boy";
"Bur rum Pa Pa Pum" .

"Away in the Manger";
And then "Joy to the World".
Joyful Christmas Songs play;
To celebrate our Lord.

The final song is sung;
For the Christmas parade.
All the people go home;
All instruments fade.

Memories with family;
And funds raised for the poor.
A fantastic parade;
A blest Christmas for sure.

The children are sleepy;
And at home in their beds.
They 're left with fond mem'ries;
And sweet songs in their heads.

Merry Christmas

A Fun Filled Night - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




A Fun Filled Night

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
November 22, 2010

Christmas bells of love are ringing;
Little ones with smiles are singing.

Shining angels running everywhere;
Running here and running over there.

A wooden manger filled with hay;
Built with care for our Christmas play.

Is where our baby Jesus will lay;
The day we celebrate Christmas day.

Do, Re , Me Fa, So, La, Ti ,Do;
We practice singing for our show.

Mary and Joseph have a fight;
Boy oh, boy, what a fun filled night.

Wiggly shepherds watch the flocks;
The smallest one pulls off his socks.

One needs another bathroom break;
And I need aspirin for my headache.

I see glitter, glitter everywhere;
From our shining star and angels hair.

Oh what fun to watch the children play;
While they learn of Christ and Christmas day.

Make Memories at Christmas - by:Susan y Nikitenko





Make Memories at Christmas

Susan Y Nikitenko

November 27th 2010

Let's go see the lights tonight:
Let's go have some fam'ly fun.
Let's bundle up and take a ride;
Before Christmas eve is done.

Christmas lights are glittering;
In the darkness of the night.
Cars are passing by each house;
To view displays of pretty lights.

I hear the happy voices;
Of excited children's joy.
Times of love and laughter;
Shared by little girls and boys.

Children's noses press the glass;
Little fingers pointing, "see".
We all smile because we spot;
A live nativity.

We stop along the roadside;
Daddy bows His head to pray.
"Thank-you Lord for your dear Son;
And thank-you for Christmas day".

Snowflakes falling to the ground;
Beautiful snow banks of white.
We couldn't of asked for better;
This special Christmas Eve night.

We sing sweetly silent night;
And reflect upon Christ's birth.
Oh, how precious these times are;
Moments, beyond all worth.

Make memories at Christmas;
Give your children happy songs.
Of angels and the new born King;
And these happy sing alongs.

Of kisses and hugs good-night;
Of little hands clasped to pray.
While all excited about;
The coming of Christmas day.

Shine Christmas - by: Susan Y Nikitenko




Shine Christmas

by: Susan Y Nikitenko
(December 13th, 2010)
(Christmas Song)

Christmas shines forth His Truth;
That God came down to man.
Christmas shines forth His hope;
Redemption for all man.

Christmas shines forth His peace;
A peace that shines within.
Christmas shines forth His love;
And forgiveness of sin.

Christmas shines forth His Light;
And Jesus is that Light.
The light that leads the Way;
That gives the blinded sight.

Shine Christmas, shine so bright;
Touch the broken and contrite.
Shine Christmas, shine the light;
Shine on. shine on tonight.

Shine on, through the snow storms;
Shine on and on through winds.
Shine on through the battles;
Shine on through foe or friend.

Shine on , Christmas, shine on ;
A celebration day.
For Jesus Christ our Lord;
A beau--ti-ful birthday.

Shine Christmas, shine so bright;
Honor Christ, oh holy night.
Shine Christmas, shine the light;
Shine on. shine on tonight.

Christmas Is So Much More - by: Susan Y Nikitenko




Christmas Is So Much More

by: Susan Y Nikitenko
December 25th, 2010

Stockings on the mantle;
Bulbs upon the trees.
Garlands of sparkly beads;
Christmas pleasantries.

Packages wrapped with bows;
And colorful lights.
Are only a small part;
Of Christmas done right.

It is not the cookies.
It is not the snow.
It is not the reindeer.
Nor the Christmas shows.

It is not Santa Clause;
Nor His ho, ho, ho.
It is not fantasy;
Nor the mistletoe.

Though it's filled with it's thrills;
For boys and for girls.
Christmas is so much more;
More than gold or pearls.

More than just memories;
Or glittery glow.
Christmas is so much more;
Much more than we know.

Christmas rings forth God's truth;
God came down to man.
And His name was Jesus;
God's redemption plan.

Christmas sounds forth His hope;
A perfect holy child.
A perfect Christmas gift;
God's blessing on us smiled.

Christmas portrays true peace;
And the Christ within.
The day that one trusts Him;
And turns from their sin.

It is not the cookies.
It is not the snow.
It is not the reindeer.
Nor the Christmas shows.

It is not Santa Clause;
Nor His ho, ho, ho.
It is not fantasy;
Nor the mistletoe.

Christmas reflects His love;
And His forgiveness.
Jesus is the reason;
We adore Christmas.

Christmas shines forth His Light;
It shows us the Way.
Jesus is the reason;
We have Christmas day.

Though it's filled with it's thrills;
For boys and for girls.
Christmas is so much more;
More than gold or pearls.

More than just memories;
Or glitter and glow.
Christmas is so much more;
Much more than we know.

A Painting of Christmas Beauty - by: Susan Y Nikitenko




A Painting of Christmas Beauty

by: Susan Y Nikitenko
November 27th 2010

The lights along the waters edge;
Shine across a frozen brook.
While Christmas lights reflect and dance;
An early moon peeks out to look.

Snow upon the rolling hillside;
A backdrop for freezing waters.
This white snow of wintry weather;
Becomes play for sons and daughters.

A painting of Christmas beauty;
Trimmed with evergreens along the hills.
And laughing youths come swishing down;
Enjoying the seasonal thrills.

You can hear the Christmas bells ring;
They seem so very far away.
A symbol of the good news ringing;
Christ came to us on Christmas day.

Christ came to us, Christ came to us;
He came to us on Christmas day.
And He would one day give His life;
To wash our sin and shame away.

He came to us, Thank God He came;
Hear the Christmas carolers singing?
They sing of grace and hope proclaiming;
Christ came down.. they keep on caroling.

Christ came to us, Christ came to us;
He came to us on Christmas day.
And He would one day give His life;
To wash our sin and shame away.

The Christmas lights shine brightly now;
And a manger scene lights up the hills.
The youths stand by an ev'ning fire;
Drinking coa coa to warm their chills.

A crackling fire beside the scene;
A lighted moon shining above.
The snow aglow , a drifty sway;
And a nativity of love.

In the quiet they say good-night;
The fire leaves a reddish glow.
And you can see all their footprints;
In the evenings new fallen snow.

Windows along the freezing slopes;
Are lit, and all is very still.
But the beautiful scene remains;
A silent night upon the hills.
