WHERE ARE YOU CHRISTMAS?
Are you trying to make Christmas happen this year~
By keeping the traditions that you hold so dear?
Is it in the making of your favorite cookies or
building the gingerbread house~
Is it in reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas"
where there is a sleeping mouse?
Is it in watching the movies that make your heart smile~
Is it in buying the truck or the doll for a child?
What happens when your tastebuds change~
And your favorite cookie is no longer the same?
Or the story book that you all loved to read~
Remains on the shelf because there's no longer a need?
Or the movies you loved, now make you cry~
And toys are something that you no longer buy?
But one thing never changes~
And that is The BABY in the crib,
Even though HE grew up to wear a robe~
And no longer a bib.
HE is who HE says HE is~
And Will do What HE has said,
No matter if the sugarplums~
Aren’t dancing in your head.
As we all grow up from a little girl or a boy~
We still need PEACE, HOPE and JOY.
And this can’t be manufactured from decorating a tree~
It is in picking up the BABY Who loves you and me.
Christmas hasn’t left your house~
Because it's a matter of the heart,
It was never about the traditions~
That may be different from the start.
Christmas Day may remind us of what we have lost~
But all is regained in the One who paid the cost.
Because BABY JESUS isn’t just a fond memory
From the past
As HE is your present and future~
Made to last.
HE takes your burdens, your anxieties, and your woes~
Your precious heart is what HE knows.
So when you ask yourself "Where are you Christmas"~
Pick up the BABE,
Because HE'S the Christmas~
That we all crave.
The unconditional Love~
Which has never changed,
A gift that keeps giving~
That you won’t want to exchange.
So when “My world is changing~
does that mean Christmas changes too”?
Just pick up the BABY~
Because HIS Love will change you.
How has your “Christmas” changed this year?
How do you believe The BABY can change your "Christmas"?
CHRISTMAS is more than just a season because CHRISTMAS is always here!
"JESUS CHRIST is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
