Christmas is not just for buying toys,
For good little girls and boys,
Although some folks would like to make it so!
Christmas is Holy angels singing,
Their news of Christ's birth bringing.,
To shepherds on a hillside long ago!
Christmas is more than just a spirit once a
Or one's being filled with kindness and cheer,
Even though this too should have its place!
Christmas speaks of a Babe in Bethlehem,
The only Begotten Son of the Great I Am,
And His coming to provide amazing grace!
Christmas is not just a time to be jolly,
Or to decorate with mistletoe and holly,
And to string lights on a Christmas tree!
Christmas is a time of peace and good will,
And yes, remembering still,
Christ came just to redeem you and me!
So Friend, let us remember,
As we cerebrate each December,
The blessed Christ child's birth,
That although contrary to the belief of some,
Real peace will only come,
When Christ returns to this Earth!
