Christmastime brings too many EXPECTATIONS,
presents we want to receive or give to others,
extended family celebrations that don't happen,
too much STRESS, and worrying over dumb things.
We forget WHY we are celebrating, it's not just
a holiday but a HOLY day that HE was born.
A MIRACLE as the age old story is recalled:
a virgin conceives a holy child named JESUS.
He grows to manhood, HEALS multitudes
TEACHES and CONVERTS many, is still remembered
two centuries later throughout many lands
and REVERED in the Christian churches of today.
The SON of GOD, angels foretold His humble birth
Shepherds and wiseman visited, TESTIFIED of Him.
Yet many today don't believe His SACRED words
or HONOR His significance to our everyday lives.
A man of LOVE, integrity and service whose life
serves as a great EXAMPLE of how to treat others.
He loved unconditionally and gave His life that
we could LIVE again with God-His Father and ours.
