Remembering Who We are Remembering By Brenda Drake

People rush about at Christmas time with little thought of the reason for our Christmas celebrations.  Many even reject the purpose for the holiday of gift-giving.  This is a gentle reminder to remember who it is we are remembering.

Remembering Who We are Remembering
Would you take some extra time out of your busy life,
To remember the celebrations ahead are in honor of the birth of Christ?
When you decorate and light up the Christmas tree,
Remember the Light of the world died on a tree to set us free.
When you wrap your gifts in brightly colored paper and bows,
Remember your greatest gift was in flesh clothed.
When your family meet together and each other bless,
In your celebration remember you are delivering to God His gifts.
Your love, peace, and joy, and your moment taken to pray,
Are pleasurable gifts you give to Him on this special day.
Remember who you are remembering; and when the day is done,
We have honored also our heavenly Father in celebrating the birth of Jesus His Son.

Psalms 77:11
I will remember the works of the Lord:
surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
