Christmas-time is almost everyone’s favorite time of year; but there are many that truly are sad and unhappy at the prospect of our approaching holiday. We tend to get caught up with our preconceived ideas of what our opinion Christmas-time is. To many it is mostly a special opportunity to get together with those we love. To others it is a day to give and receive gifts. To many Christmas means parties: socializing with friends, family, or those we work with. The definition of Christmas means food, fun, love, and giving. Yet Christmas-time ushers in a sort of depression for some, with an intense missing of someone that is no longer around and it is handled by pushing the importance of the Christmas holiday aside. Christmastime can be and is all stated above and more. Christmas is a time of remembering. A holy reminder of a miraculous birth that was a gift bestowed upon us from our Father in heaven. A gift that was provision sent for us to be able to spend eternity with a God of such love. It will take eternity to understand how low He had to go to help us reach as high as He desires us to go.
Christ in Christmas Kept Alive
Bright lighted trees line the streets with good cheer,
Signs of good tidings with festive music for the ears.
Both child and adult can clearly see,
That the joy of Christmas-day is fast approaching.
There are songs about Santa, reindeer and sleds in the snow,
And some lively tunes of the joys of mistletoe.
You may hear every once and awhile,
The Christmas story of the virgin mother and child.
You may see an image of babe in a manger- frozen in time past,
To remind of Christmas’ real reason as you in wonder look back.
Sweet little children will only learn of the Holy virgin birth,
And about the Savior that left heaven to be born on earth;
From caring parents and others that faithfully of Christ testify.
Christmas-times real reason is only then kept alive!
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
