Truly Blessed

I stand at the brink of Christmas
Wondering how it will be
It's not just about Santa
Or a decorated tree

Certainly not the shopping
Waiting in all those long lines
It seems the Savior's Birthday
Has escaped so many minds

It's nice to have traditions
Sipping egg nog by the fire
Yet if we take a moment
Our thoughts can go much higher

Not just some fairy tale
Like a reindeer and red nose
Instead the Birth of Jesus
In a manger with swaddling clothes

So let us join with angels
Celebrate this great event
God's Son taking human form
A gift that was Heaven sent

Amidst all of the glitter
We forget the honored guest
If he sits at our table
The day will truly be blessed

    Hi Richard, yes, so many of us do forget the real meaning of Christmas, I must admit I am one. I get caught up In all the rig-ma-roll. Sometime during the day I do remember but that isn't the way It should be. I should remember from the start of the day til the end. An excellent poem Richard, giving us the real meaning of Christmas. This poem touches something deep within our core. A truth told In your own gently flowing style. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    A touching and inspiring poem. We have a breakfast cake on Christmas morning and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus with the grandkids to start the day.

    Good afternoon, Richard........It's 5:00 pm.....In about an hour I'm going out to a banquet with Hubby's colleagues who've come from all over the world for a seminar that has taken place here in the Media Center, which he is administrator of, in Beirut, Lebanon- a seminar for Adventist World Radio. :) Have a great day!
