    What Matters

    It doesn’t matter
    when You were born.
    The time of year doesn’t matter,
    the temperature doesn’t matter.

    It doesn’t matter
    where You were born,
    whether angels sang,
    if there were shepherds and Magi,
    if they followed the same star.

    For those who need proof–
    it matters that the census is
    recorded in history,
    the star is in the record books,
    Your death and resurrection
    have been recorded.

    What really matters is that
    we live the story
    over and over again,
    down through the centuries.

    What matters is that
    You came to live among us,
    that you still live among us,
    that you died and rose again
    that we might live forever.

    Gloria Ziemienski,
