Santas Surprise

By Reneice McDonald

Christmas is my favourite time of year,
Filled with fun, laughter and good cheer.
Friends and family gather together,
But it wouldn’t be the same without Mr. Claus affectionately called Santa.

I decided to write Santa a letter, 
As he makes the Christmas season much better.
What do I want from Santa this year?
I wrote… “A Barbie doll, a blue bike, or a cushiony teddy bear…”

On Christmas day, I looked under my tree,
To see what Santa left for me.
To my surprise, my gift was heaven sent;
On the floor lay a golden ornament.

It shone so brightly like a star,
I dared not go too close, so I stood afar.
But I had to know more about this gift,
Which gave my heart a shimmering lift.

As I walked slowly to the tree,
The precious light grew dim, so I could see.
I took up the ornament which opened in my hands, 
And five priceless gems were seen which put me in a trance.

I stood in awe at such a sight,
I wasn’t panicked, I was alright.
I saw a note within the shell,
And read it aloud very well.

It read, “My dear friend Reneice,
In whom I’m well pleased, 
I’ve received your letter of request.
However, I think these gems are the best.”

I looked at the gems carefully, every last one…
And thought, “These must be sent from Jesus the Son.
For each gem was quite unique 
Reflecting love, faith, hope, joy, and eternal peace.
