Kara L. Kraemer

About this Christian Poet:
Kara L. Kraemer was born and raised in Spokane, Washington, where she graduated from a small Presbyterian college.  After spending eight years in the Washington, D.C., area and one year in Hawaii, most of her life has been in Seattle, Washington, where she retired as Manager/Supervisor for the Import Section of Seattle's District Office of FDA.  Kara and her husband Les now reside in the golf community of Alderbrook, Washington. After winning a two-year battle with lyme disease, Kara began writing poems in 2008.  

Prayer Within a Festive Christmas

Wakened shadows of bright lights glow from within my heart,
To feel the beating ember of cheer upon its every part.
There amidst the clamor of Christmas bells, I know
Glory and honor due to You this season will flow
Even up into the heavens.
A silent prayer within me swells,
Alight with thanksgiving that dwells
For always within for the Son whose name we praise
And celebrate with peace and love on holy days
Throughout all the earth.
O Blessed Redeemer, never does Your beauty wane.
Robed in splendor, You are king and will forever reign.
We triumph in Your coronation,
Rejoice in our eternal salvation
From within the depths of our souls.
