Just a simple Christmas poem…

December 12, 2009 shamslayer

Christmas is here once again~

With the bell ringers out in earnest

People scurrying about in the mall

Post office lines at least a mile long

The smell of baking pumpkin pies permeating the air

Twinkling lights hanging from the tree

Gifts wrapped in decorative paper and bright bows

Christmas movies showing non-stop on the television

Silent Night and Jingle Bells playing on the radio

The line to See’s Candies growing ever longer

It’s all this and so much more

That makes up Christmas.

But ~

The true meaning of Christmas is…

A humble birth

In a manger

Long ago, far away

To a lowly family

Called by God

To bring the Savior

To give His life

To a lost and dying world.
