Hi everyone! I am hoping all of you have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
As I was going through some old Christmas decorations,I found a card in the bottom of the box. As a Christian, this poem on the card symbolizes exactly what Christmas means to me. I'm not saying I don't try to buy some things for my family and friends at Christmas that I know will put a smile on their face. I have a twenty year old disabled son who still believes in Santa Clause, and I will try to keep Santa real to him for as long as i possibly can, and I find myself getting caught up in the commercial side of it as much as the next person,and getting stressed both mentally, physically and financially with all that comes along with the season, but I pray God will always keep me reminded of my reasons for celebrating.
Some of you may have read this poem before, but it reminded me exactly what I hope I never take forgranted. Jesus not only was born, but was born with a divine purpose. Christmas should not just be about Christ's birth, but the birth, crucifixion, and resurrection. It is through Him that all things are possible.
Little baby on the hay, soon there'll be another day
When nails shall pierce Your hands and feet
As You provide our sin's defeat.
Risen Jesus on the throne, we lift our praise to You alone.
For You're the gift that we receive the moment that our hearts believe.
Merry Christmas! Thanks for allowing me to share.
