A Story:

The little boy awakened jumping with joy
At last, it was Christmas Day today
His voice echoed throughout the house
Get Up! Get Up! It's Christmas Day!

Smiling and laughing, he jumped out of bed
Down the stairs, he quickly fled
He stopped to see if the milk and cookies were gone
That he had left for Santa to snack on!

His face was glowing, when he reached the tree
Piles of presents, was all he could see!
He looked under the tree with a sad look of despair
The only gift he wanted, definitely was not there!

His parents could see the tears in his eyes
Which to them was quite a surprise!
He told them to call Santa, to come back
And to take all the stuff, back home in his sack!

Upon announcing this, he ran to his room
Christmas was suppose to be happy, not full of gloom!
When he reached his room, he jumped in his bed
Then, he pulled the blankets over his head!

Both parents were in complete shock
Everything he had asked for was in his sock!
They could not understand why he was so upset
What was it that Santa had forgot to get?

Up the stairs, both of them went
To see what was the most wanted, forgotten present!
When they reached his room, they could hear his cries
So they went in, to dry the tears from his eyes!

The little boy reached out, to cling to his mother
The parents glanced back and forth, at each other!
The little boy started to tell them
The only thing that he wanted, that was not left for him!

Today is very big day, it's Christmas Day
I wanted to wish Jesus myself...."Happy Birthday!"
Santa was suppose to bring Him to me
He was suppose to be here this morning, under the tree!

That's all I asked Santa to bring
I never asked for another thing!
Now, Jesus will be mad and not love me
Because Santa forgot to put Him, under the tree!

I have a special gift for Jesus
I made it at kindergarden for Him, from all of us!
Now, He will never know
How much I love Him so!

Both parents could not believe
That this was the gift Santa forgot to leave!
Jesus still loves you, they both said
Now it's time for you to get, out of bed!

They all proceeded to get dressed and ready
As they were running late already!
The Christmas Service was held at exactly ten
Every year, over and over again!

They told their son to take along, the present
And off to church, the three of them went.
The little boy looked all around
But no sign of Jesus was to be found!

Inside the church, they could hear the bells ring
Away in a Manager, the congretation started to sing!
The little boy told his mother, I have to go pee
You don't have to come with me!

He slowly made his way to the door that led outside
Over to the huge Nativity, he walked with pride!
He pulled out his wrapped present, placing it beside Baby Jesus
This is not much he said, but it's from all of us!

I wanted to give it to you, in person today
Because it's Christmas and Your Birthday!
Tears in his eyes, he said...I made it especially for you
Because Jesus, I love you!

As he started walking away, he heard a voice say "Wait!"
You can give it to me, it's not to late!
When he turned around, Jesus was standing there
Opening the present, with great care!

Smiling, inside the box was a star with a note
Jesus read out loud, what was wrote!
My teacher wrote this for me, to give to you
Happy Birthday Jesus, I love you!

Jesus wrapped His arms around the little boy
He said, "Thank You, for giving me so much Joy!"
Always Remember, I will always love you!
No matter what happens, I'll never be mad at you!

The little boy went back in the church and sat down
All you could see now was a big smile, not one frown!
When they got home, he rushed to the tree
And yelled; "Thank You, Santa for bringing Jesus to me!"

Wow!! Linda, this is a blessing that I don't have words to describe. The heart of that little boy is what we all should strive to have. You write so beautifully. I have tears in my eyes still as I try to write this to you.

This beautiful write is a gift to each of us who is blessed to read it. You have no idea how much I love it.

Thank you and may God bless you through this season and always,

Love, Karen
