Rejoice! Rejoice! Poems for the Holidays is a book of Christian poetry. Throughout scripture the people of God are called to rejoice because He is King and Creator of all and because He loves us. One of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:4, which says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” This little book of poetry is all about rejoicing in the Lord through the many holidays of the church year.
It begins with Advent and preparation for the coming of Christ, at Christmas and in the future. It ends with Thanksgiving and a reminder that God is the source of all we have to be thankful for. In between, you’ll find the Lenten season, Holy Week, Pentecost, and more. Some holidays are somber and others are festive, but all are a reason to Rejoice that God is King and Creator of all. The 72 poems in this book range from free verse to form poetry, such as triolets, pantoums, sedokas, and acrostics. Each is written to help you focus on the One in whom we rejoice.
