Day 7: Where Is Christmas




WHERE IS CHRISTMAS? (A Poem)

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 storybook 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!

*********************************************

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).

How has your “Christmas” changed this year?

How do you believe The BABY can change your "Christmas"?
