The Christmas Gift - Poem by Julie Dale

THE 'CHRISTMAS GIFT'
(Is You)

IT OFTEN GOES UNSAID WE ALL KNOW THAT IT’S TRUE:
THAT CHRISTMAS IS A SEASON THAT BRINGS GODS LOVE TO YOU.

WE MAY NOT GIVE LOVE OFTEN AND WE MAY NOT BE SINCERE; YET AT CHRISTMAS TIME WE KNOW THAT IT WILL SOON BE A NEW YEAR.

SO WE TRY TO GIVE EACH OTHER SOMETHING SPECIAL, SOMETHING NICE. WE GIVE TO ONE ANOTHER CHRISTMAS WISHES AND ADVICE.
WE EACH HAVE OUR AGENDA BE IT WRONG OR BE IT RIGHT IT’S JUST OUR OWN OPINION HOW WE SEE CHRISTMAS NIGHT.

SOME SEE THE CHILD JESUS OTHER SEE A CHRISTMAS TREE. SOME SEE THE TOYS AND PRESENTS OTHERS SEE WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE.
THERE ARE THOSE WHO SHARE WITH OTHERS WHILE SOME GET ALL THEY CAN AND SOME PEOPLE PRAY ON BENDED KNEES FOR THE SON OF MAN.

WHAT EVER YOU HOPE AND WHATEVER YOU LOVE REMEMBER YOU WERE “THE GIFT” FROM HEAVEN ABOVE. FOR GOD GAVE YOU TO A WOMAN AND MAN TO SHARE YOUR LIFE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN. YOUR FUTURE MAY BE UNCERTAIN BUT ONE THING YOU KNOW IS TRUE. THE MIRACLE OF CHRISTMAS WAS OUR GIFT OF YOU.

SO THANK YOU GOD FOR OUR BABY THE ONE WE HOLD SO DEAR AND THANK YOU FOR THE CULMINATION OF ANOTHER WONDERFUL YEAR; AND IF I SEEM UNGRATEFUL OR FORGET THE GIFT YOU GAVE REMIND ME OF THE LIFE YOU LED AND MY LIFE YOU SAVED.

FOR AS I NOW REMEMBER I WAS WITHOUT A CLUE, A CHILD WONDERING THRU THE DAYS FOR WHAT WAS MISSING WAS YOU.

AND NOW I KNOW DEAR JESUS THAT YOU ARE MY GUIDING LIGHT A BEACON OF HOPE AMONG DISPAIR AND THE MAP OF WRONG AND RIGHT.

I THANK YOU GOOD LORD JESUS WITH VOICES AS WE SING: PRAISE TO THE LORD ALMIGHTY, OUR SAVIOR AND OUR KING.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
