The Meaning of Christmas 


It’s not about the presents under the Christmas tree

But the presence of love we find from friends and family

It’s not about the shopping that we feel we must do

But about the gift already given freely to me and you

The gift is a gift that money can’t buy

The birth of Jesus was for you and I

It’s not about making a list and checking it twice

And buying gifts for the naughty or nice

The reason for this season isn’t about all the debt and stress

It’s a season to offer simple gifts, such as patience and forgiveness

Or maybe a gift of time for one whose time is running out

A meal for a family in need to encourage hope where there is doubt

Or maybe someone needs a helping hand to accomplish a tedious chore

And don’t forget your lonely neighbor down the street or right next door

Oh, if we would take the materialism out of this season

And in its place remember that Christ in Christmas is the reason

We could try and keep the Christmas attitude all year through

By simply treating others as you’d want them to treat you

So when we say Merry Christmas” to you and your family

We’re wishing you peace, love and health; that’s real prosperity!

 

Merry Christmas from my heart to yours!
