My Humble Message to the World Today


My eternal wish is for peace on earth;

Today many of us are celebrating

the birth of Christ, or

the Jewish festival of re-dedication, also known as the Festival of Lights,

or preparing for Kwanza.

Celebrating life in general is what we all have in common:

Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, baptisms,

Bar mitzvahs, Bat mitzvahs, retirements, accomplishments of all kinds,

and even honoring those who have passed is worth a celebration of life.

So I don’t get why we cannot concentrate

our efforts on becoming a part of each other

no matter what you believe in,

the synchronicity is evident.

When we born our hearts beat in unison.

We are all amazed at life’s wonders;

when we observe a magnificent sunrise,

or sunset, a waterfall, a butterfly or

a hummingbird hovering over a red rose.

We all love to be loved, hugged, kissed,

and snuggled by our mothers.

We all want to belong and be accepted for who we are.

I mean, is this not the truth?

Our humanity is unique.

We love, we even hate some of the same things.

Let us remember why we celebrate today most especially.

Let us be enlightened.

Let us be united.

Let us reach out to someone who may need a smile

or a simple and sincere greeting today.

We are all born into this world for a reason.

Let us all reflect on what that reason and purpose might be.

2020 begins a new decade and presents

a new opportunity for us to choose peace

instead of war, all wars, any war no matter how far,

even the wars that are embedded deep in our souls.

Let us choose love over hate and bigotry,

Let us choose gaining knowledge

about what makes us different over

ignorance and indifference.

Peace is not only a season or a few dates on the calender

but it is and should a way of life!

God bless you all!

Happy holidays!!

Merry Christmas!


This is a voice over I made a few years ago for my grandson. I have another grandson almost a year old and so I am dedicating this to him and his big brother. I love this poem and hope you will enjoy it too.

Melba Christie presents:

The Night Before Christmas


“This Christmas mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love, and then speak it again.” – Author Unknown

Spreading the Cheer


Big Star Tree

 

Little tree thought of the gift
given by him,
then the big tree said with the
happiest grin,
“We’re not just trees,
but a reminder of that day,
there’s a much bigger part,
of a role that we play!”

 

Daisy


*My dear sister Daisy passed away 14 years ago on the day after Christmas which was her favorite holiday. Although there are so many things that make me happy on this day, I cannot forget her spirit and deep love for her family. For me Christmas is really not the same anymore.

 

many memories of you visited me today

and in a dream I asked you to stay

 

Christmas was your favorite time of year

and your made sure to spread the cheer

 

on your watch no one was allowed to go without

love and giving to others was what you were about

 

and like the flower you were named after

you made our days all the brighter

 

Every time I see a Daisy

I see you smiling in my mind

 

there will be many daisies

but you my dear sister were only one of a kind.

Christmas Song Medley Poem


Peace on Earth

Note: This poem is made up of lines from my favorite Christmas songs. 

 

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas

this Christmas most especially

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Each moment in peace eternally

 

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Do you hear what I hear?

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

Telling us Our Jesus Christ is Born

 

Please come home for Christmas

Cause you’re all I want for Christmas

There is nothing like

Having you home for the holidays

 

When you get here

This Christmas

We will all sing

our favorite  Christmas songs

During the Silent Night

we will Praise His Name forever

and listen to the angels sing

and keep our troubles

out of sight

 

And though it’s been said many times

many ways

Merry Christmas to you

Especially this Christmas

will be a Christmas to Remember
