Merry Christmas-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

The Purpose of Christmas

It’s not about the presents under the Christmas tree,

but the presence of love we feel from friends and family.

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

But about the free gift that’s already been given 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, like patience and forgiveness

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

A meal for a family in need to bring 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 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 I say Merry Christmas to you and your family

I’m wishing you peace, love and health; that’s real prosperity!

Merry Christmas, friend . . .

    I believe and receive this Christmas poem of insight! Jesus is all we need and giving Jesus away to others is the reason for this season of giving. He is always the PERFECT GIFT and one size fits all!!!
