What Christmas Is All About

Christmas will always be for us
A time to reflect on Christ,
The gift God gave to all the world
Was the gift of His life
We know Christmas is not about tinsel,
Nor fancy Christmas wreaths,
Nor is it about all the decorations
That adorns our Christmas trees
And it's not about Holly or Mistletoe
Hanging from our doors,
Nor is it about the gifts that are left
By the jolly Santa Claus
Christmas is more than all of this
And the only reason why
We celebrate Christ's birth together
And the wonder of His life
So remember as you celebrate,
Just what it's all about
And invite the Lord to join with you,
Instead of leaving Him out
For He will always be the reason
We celebrate this day,
No substitute the world may offer
Can take that meaning away.

Luke 2:12
“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.”      

Until Next Time
