Christmas is full of surprises each day in the month of December...just remember...
The old saying that says it all...".Jesus is the reason for the season".
God gave the best gift of all.
He gave Jesus, Jesus, oh precious Jesus, the baby who was born as our gift.
A gift of life, of hope, of peace...for all generations he came to release...
our shame, our pain, our loss-in the soul
The gentle baby became a man who gave it all to make us whole.
His love began in a cradle filled with innocence and pure love
it led him to a cross that shed his blood and tears from above.
Just like the Father gave the best gift of all on that Christmas morning-
we walk in his footsteps to give gift's to those we love
and those that are without love.
See without the world even really knowing
God has passed down a tradition that keeps going.
God is love and so the love we share is first from God birthed through His son bonded by His spirit and lives in each man, woman, boy or girl
in every heart all over the world.
Everyday can be Christmas which really means to worship Christ
Our gift giving can get pretty expensive just imagine our Father's price.
Take this moment to reflect on your life, where your heart is right now is everything alright?
Or could you kneel once more before the baby king-
have Jesus be born again again in your heart to forever sing?
Glory to God in the highest, Peace on earth to all men.
Jesus whispers are you listening...I love you, I grew up to die for your sin.
Have a Merry Christmas as you remember what it means
not rules and regulations but a miracle that happens beyond your dreams.
Just remember Christmas is full of surprises.
