Day After Christmas

My sincere hope is that not one of you is actually reading this on Christmas day but maybe a few will see it on the day after Christmas or in the days that follow. Which brings me to the most perfect message and song for today… Day After Christmas by Matthew West.

And I’ll keep my message short and sweet this week because these lyrics say it all:

“So, take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing
Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here”

Take your joy to the world and be the light this year in the lives you’re bound to touch: Clients, patients, co-workers, employees, coaches, teachers, vendors, friends, strangers. Give them hope, give them cheer, meet their pessimism with optimism, and live your life as an example of grace, acceptance, and joy.

Happy Day after Christmas and Merry Rest of the Year!

Matthew West: Day After Christmas

“Here comes the letdown, Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here
Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world
Come January I’m ready for summer
The Super Bowl’s over and I’ll settle for spring
Sometimes we all need a change in the weather
But it won’t change the reason we sing
Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world
The light of the world
The light of the world
So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing
Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here”
