I hear the bells but not the music

I hear the bells but not the music
This year has been one of struggle for me
The depression has been worse
And now another health issue
Added to this is the pain of family and friends
With some losing jobs
And others losing homes and/or families
Life is really tough at times
Yet in the dark night shineth the everlasting star
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight
So while I for the first time ever
Have almost no “Christmas Spirit”
I cling to the Christmas Child
I hope this week to get the cards mailed
And unlike prior Christmases
This year I will be giving gift cards
Instead of the usually well considered gifts
I know that in the thinking about Christmas
I will pray that I see again the light which has always shone
And in that Light
I can sing the songs of Christmas
And know afresh
The Gift that came
And keeps on coming until we are with Him forever
