Five Days Before Christmas

... And all through the house
every creature is stirring (hopefully not a mouse).
The stocking are hung on the front of my desk next to the tree
in the hope that dear Mommy won't want to flee!
My plate this week is full ... and not with Christmas treats
but rather a "laundry" list of stuff to do that makes me quite weak!
There are appointments to order for the new home such as:
hearth stone
and tile
I'm sure when Friday's over
I'll be wearing a big smile!

But that's not what Christmas is all about.
Remember the babe in the manger
that made the angels SHOUT:
Glory to God in the highest?

Remember? He didn't stay a baby
but IS incarnate.

Remember? It's HIStory that is behind
the tree, mistletoe, Santa, packages,
goodies to eat, parties to attend
new PJ's for the kids

Put him back ... don't devalue His prominence
Keep Him at the center of your celebrations.

Remember His purpose.
To save us from our sins
have everlasting life.


Merry Christmas to all
and to all a good night!
