Christmas Thoughts

Keep Christ at the heart of our Xmas
the reason for all our joy
Let us reflect on the season's true meaning
the birth of God's dear little boy
Whenever we see decorations that sparkle
and tree lights that glimmer and glow
Let us remember the star that shone brightly
and lit up that night long ago
Whenever we wrap up our presents to others and dream of the gifts we'd like best
Let us remember God's gift of a Savior
the gift that outshines all the rest
Let us keep Christ as the heart of our Christmas
and take time to think of His love
The secret to feeling His true Christmas spirit
and knowing His peace from above. Amen
