Christmas is a special time for everyone. It is filled with love, family and laughter, but consider the true meaning of Christmas. What gift to you offer to those you love?

Remember Christmas

 

Christmas is a wondrous time,

that magical time of year,

When lives are filled with family, 

and friends we hold so dear.

Our homes, they twinkle and glisten,

decorations all aglow

As Santa and his reindeer

stand proudly in a row.

The streets are filled with shoppers,

bustling everywhere

Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells

are heard throughout the air.

 

Fragrances fill our homes,

gingerbread, berry and pine

The tree in the corner all adorned,

with lights that sparkle and shine

An abundance of packages under the tree,

beautifully wrapped with a bow

To fill all the wishes on everyone’s list,

we had to search high and low

Hours of baking those wonderful treats;

fruitcakes, cookies and pies

We need an assortment to share with our friends,

every color, flavor and size

 

Parties are those special events,

we look forward to all year

With Carols, food and laughter,

our days are filled with cheer

And don’t forget the mistletoe,

the element of surprise

When someone pecks you on the cheek

and makes a smile arise.

Yes, Christmas is that special time,

we anticipate all year

We put our best foot forward,

so Santa will know we are here.

 

But is all that important,

is that what Christmas is about?

Should presents be the reason,

we celebrate and shout?

What about that brightly lit star,

that shined for all to see

Was that for Santa and his deer

to search for you and me?

What about the heavenly angels

whose praises filled the sky

Were their melodious voices

meant for you and I?

 

What about the wise men,

with gifts of perfume and gold

What could be worth the journey

that they just had to behold?

What about the lowly manger,

a bed of straw and hay

Would you or I be willing

to sleep in that today?

What about that baby,

born on earth that night

Was there something extra special

that led others to that sight?

 

Jesus lived his life a pauper,

yet we need for not a thing

We aren’t worthy of our riches;

He was born to be the King.

His love is beyond measure,

His grace in abundant supply

His blood was spilled for you and me,

for He was born to die.

Yes, Christmas is a special time,

remember on that day

A babe was born in Bethlehem,

so He could provide a way.

 

Christmas is a time for gifts;

there’s no better place to start

Take the gift God has for you

and put Jesus in your heart.

Celebrate the birth of Christ,

love and trust Him and obey

God’s gifts just keep on giving,

‘cause we’ll live with Him someday.

 

So remember on that Birthday morn’,

when you look upon your tree

Remember to give thanks and pray,

it’s because of Him we’re free.

 

 

Life is a Rainbow

I love Christmas, every bit of it, and I celebrate it as both Jesus' birthday and the more commercialized side, and I wish the hope of the season would be alive all year, it's a beautiful time, and how well you captured it all. Thanks for this, I can't wait till this time of the year!!
