Here’s our annual reminder to remember the Reason for the season!
‘Tis the week before Christmas, and all through my mind
whirl thoughts about presents I still need to find!
There’s a checklist for groceries and one for the gifts
And just to make sure, a checklist for my list!
Decorations and stockings were hung just in time
The last minute cleaning is the next thing in line.
Did I purchase the cranberries, the cider, and nog?
A fire is a nice touch, must purchase a log!
Everything must be perfect, my plans all in sync.
Must have all the items for food and for drink.
But nagging inside me, way back in my mind
it seems there’s still something that I’ve left behind.
What detail escapes me, what’s missing I plea?
My head is just throbbing, what in heaven could it be?
Wait a minute! In heaven… in heaven indeed.
How could I forget the one thing that I need!
With the flurry of planning and shopping galore
I’ve omitted that gift I should never ignore.
The gift that was born on one cold starry night.
to a world lost in darkness and filled it with light!
The gift that costs nothing, yet is priceless for sure.
The gift that was given to all of the world.
Oh, thank you Dear Jesus, for leaving your throne.
And coming to earth to make heaven my home.
Oh God, please forgive me for losing my way
and help me put Christ back into Christmas day!
Have a very Blessed Christmas
