The Reason

Post by Claudia » Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:40 pm

I heard a voice amongst the scurrying crowd,
declaring annoyance at Christmas...he was so loud!
I looked around at faces strained, their arms full
of packages, trying hard to maintain.
Yes, Christmas can be stressful, more work than delight,
but let's not forget that long ago night.
God gave us a Gift that can never be matched,
we need only accept it with hearts wide, unlatched.
The Babe in the manger was only the beginning,
His Holy Spirit still works wonders, more hearts
He is winning.
So let's slow down the hustle and bustle,
and give thought to the season,
for Jesus, of course, is the absolute Reason!

Claudia, I so agree with your poetic write....short but truthful.....when we forget that Jesus truly is the reason for Christmas, then we have forgotten ALL that matters. I pray that we ALL keep CHRIST in CHRISTMAS......a wonderful write....looking forward to more.......KayD

Ah shucks! Just relaying what I've seen the past few weeks. Thank you all for your prayers and concern during my recent surgeries. God granted me strength and piece due to those prayers!
