The Perfect Gift

The Perfect Gift

I went shopping I had to find the perfect gift for everyone,
The lines were so long I wondered if I’d ever get done.
The stores were so crowded and it was so hard to see,
People just stood in the way I’d never find what I’d need.
I struggled so hard trying to find my way out of the store,
As I promised myself I would never come back here anymore.
I sat down outside watching as everyone walked by so fast,
Carrying so many shopping bags wishing that I had more cash.
I had really messed up I hadn’t bought any gifts for anyone,
Christmas was coming soon and I didn’t have anything done.
I looked up at the sky as I walked, and the snow started to fall,
There had to be more to Christmas surly this couldn’t be all.
I heard church bells ringing I stopped and I hurried inside,
There was the most beautiful nativity I saw baby Jesus and I cried.
All of this time I’d been shopping for the perfect gift in every way,
Done on my knees God showed me I had finally found it today.
Lying in a manger Jesus our Savior, Gods only precious Son,
My heart was overflowing with joy I knew my shopping was done.
I gathered my family together so I could thankfully share,
The perfect gift that God gave us because He loves us and cares.

I love the way you brought this to the Truth. It is wonderful. If just one person can get hold of the reality of Christmas all the angels in heaven will rejoice. I do believe this will touch many more than one. It is simply beautiful.
Love, Sharon

You said it the way it is much of the time Eva. But sooner or later, after all of the shopping is done, one truth remains, Christmas is about the birth of our Lord Jesus, and His the not only the greatest gift, but as you say so well in these verses, The Perfect Gift. My, it's late, got to go to bed. LOL God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

I really love your poem, Eva. You've expressed what many people feel during the Christmas season and you reveal beautifully how it should really be. Praise God for His Perfect Gift that will never break or fade away, ours for all eternity!
Love and blessings, Shirley
