Mistletoe for kissing loved ones,
Shimmering garland on a tree,
Dancing colored lights that bring smiles
As they brightly create a scene.
Festive wreaths adorning doors
Huge blow-ups that stand tall,
Ornaments of every shape and size
You couldn’t even imagine them all.
Elaborate trees in decorated houses
Carols that stir your soul to joy
But, don’t forget the REASON we celebrate,
Remember it began with a royal baby boy.
From the very throne of Heaven
A perfect plan from God’s own heart,
And through many years, tears, and colorful peers,
The line of David was set apart.
Then, a willing “yes” from a humble virgin
A faith-filled step of an obedient man,
A choice to embark on the word of angels
to bring us the holy Lamb.
So, as we celebrate this wonderful season
And we purchase such thoughtful gifts,
Remember that the real Present
Became the sacrificial ram that continues to give.
