Now That's Christmas!! 11-10-08

.
Sending the gifts to place under the tree -
or
sending His Son - in place of me?

Presents all wrapped under colorful bows -
or
a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes?

Watching a tree, its flashing star -
or
watching three wise men come from afar?

Seeing a horse pull a grand open sleigh -
or
seeing a babe fast asleep on the hay?

Knowing that children are still waking up -
or
knowing that Jesus must drink from the cup?

Children all screaming at presents galore -
or
people all screaming, their anger outpour?

Children who struggled with patient surprise -
or
Jesus who struggled with tears in His eyes?

Proof there was chocolate I got with a whiff -
or
proof that God loves us with His special Gift?

Gifts from our mother and father we love -
or
gifts of blessings from our Father above?

Sharing the truth with each, one another -
or
sharing Jesus to our sister and brother?

A warm embrace -
or
His matchless grace?

Giving -
or
forgiving?

Now that's Christmas!
The greatest gift!
