The Christ in Christmas by Pat Simmons

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house… Who isn’t familiar with the childhood poem?
As a child, I was taught the meaning of Christmas alongside the fantasy of Santa Claus, which in times past, took the spotlight off of Christ.

Today, tonight, tomorrow and forever, I meditate on the end result of His Birth—His Death—Grand Resurrection. Knowing, the twist of the Christmas Story, I can rejoice because I’m the recipient of an unmatched gift.

I hope tonight, the night before Christmas, you’ll have a chance to reread the original Christmas story passed on from generation to generation: Matthew 1-2 and/or Luke 1-2.

Merry CHRISTmas!

As a Christian romance author, I have penned five Christmas novellas, which shows the endless ways why the humility of Christ is the reason for all seasons. Until 2019, be blessed!

  1. Beautiful, Pat. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this most special time of year. Merry Christmas!

  2. As a child, I knew Twas the Night Before Christmas by heart. The whole poem. But I didn't understand the story of Christ too well. I'm so glad things changed. Knowing Him is the greatest gift of all. Merry Christmas!

    1. Amen. I know what you mean. I could recite it too. I'm so glad I know Jesus today.
