Merry Christmas

I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  This Christmas was a tough one for me not being with my family but I had the most amazing day..We went to church last night and at the end of the service we all lit a candle and sang Silent Night as we walked outside to a manger scene.  The Pastor said a prayer and we blew out the candles.. I know I was not the only one in tears.   

  The True Meaning Of Christmas
by Brian K. Walters

In todays' day and time,
it's easy to lose sight,
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.

When we go shopping,
We say "How much will it cost?"
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.

Amidst the tinsel, glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
born on a night so cold.

The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the child
Whose bed was made of hay.

In reality,
When we look into the night sky,
We don't see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,
Whose love, the world would know.
