Thanksgiving passes once again,
We all know what's ahead,
Christmas Eve and Santa Claus,
Rudolph's nose so red.

Well it started back in Bethlehem,
One blessed starry night,
With a precious gift for all mankind;
God's Eternal Light.

Wise men humbly showed their thanks,
With gifts of gold and myrrh,
While angels who looked down in awe,
Gave thanks from where they were.

So this year after you wake up
And Santa's gone away.
Remember how this came to be,
Thank God for Christmas Day!!

Luke 2:15

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the
shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

Well written and straight from the heart. True, it's all about His gift to us and not what we might try to do to be acceptable to Him. "While we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
Blessings J'nia
