My Birthday is coming soon. Everybody is getting
ready to celebrate. Last year they had a party too.
They said it was in my honor, but they forgot to
send me an invitation.
I went anyway. I went in very quietly, so as not to
disturb anyone. They had beautiful decorations and
lots of food to eat. They also had lots of liquor to
I stood silent in a corner. I saw everybody eating,
drinking and having fun. I thought that they would
offer me some, but they didn't even notice me at all.
Soon a fat man dressed in red came in, yelling - HO,
HO, HO. All the children ran to him. They all carried on,
like if he was the most important of all.
Midnight came and everybody kissed and hug eachother.
I too opened my arms to see if they would hug me too,
but no one did. They all exchanged gifts. I left, I felt like
they had shut the door in my face.
This year I'm going to have a party. The biggest party of
all. I am inviting all of you. I hope that you will come. If
you decide to come - I will write your name with Gold
Letters in my guest book.
You have been invited. It is now up to you if you want
to come. I will be waiting with Opened arms.
Your friend JESUS...
