Tell a Friend  

About the Writer:
Sherrill Schlimpert

An ordinary suburban girl with an extraordinary passion for seeking the Lord’s will in her life, Sherrill is more than a poet. She is a retired elementary school teacher, mother of two grown children, and wife for over 31 years. One dreary morning's drive awakened her passion for writing prayer-poetry as God greeted her with a spectacular sunrise. Her flow of words and faith has filled two self-published books so far.



Christmas Love

By Sherrill Schlimpert

FromCream for Your Coffee…Sherrill's Book of Poetry

Christmas is the time of year

Our thoughts turn to loved ones far and near.

A time to celebrate the birth

Of the babe who came to earth

To show us what it means to love

With the blessings from the One above.

And so as we get out tinsel and tree,

Let us take time down on our knee

To thank Him for blessings that surround.

For we forget to give thanks for all that abounds.

But beyond the gifts that we can touch,

It’s friends and family that mean so much,

And for which we stop and thank Him now.

For it’s the love in them that shows us how

To love like the babe who grew to give,

To show us how we always should live,

Now just at time of Christmas cheer,

But throughout this whole coming new year.
