Christmas Questions

I was looking at my December Calendar and began to feel a little overwhelmed with all I wanted to do so I wrote this to give me perspective.

Christmas Questions
by Cheryl Merrick

As I attempt to do more in two weeks
than I normally do in two months,
I begin to ask Questions

Can I really do all this?
Should I be doing it?
Do I have the strength to do it?
Is it the best use of my limited energies?
Will it bring peace and joy into my life
and the lives of those I love?
Am I sacrificing things of eternal value
for things that are merely good?
Am I enjoying peace on earth?
Am I so busy doing things that
 I forget the meaning of Christmas?
Am I savoring the season?
Am I remembering Christ?

I have written many other poems which I am posting on my other blog
