MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

Far away in Bethlehem, a baby Boy was born;
Born with neither riches nor with fame,
Yet wise men came from all around to bring
to Him their gifits,
And peace was felt by all who heard his name.
Angels watched Him as He slept, and gently
rocked His bed;
Their voices singing softly in His ear;
His Mother and His Father both gave thanks
to God above
For the greaest gift of all, their Son, so dear.
They knew His life upon this earth would not
be filled with wealth,
They also knew He would encounter strife;
But most of all, they knew that he would be
a loving child,
And teach the love of God throughout
his life.
At Christmas, as we celebrate this Birth of
Jesus Christ,
Let us keep in mind the truth of Christmas
Day;
For it is not the Christmas wrappings, nor the
gifts that lie within,
But our gift of love to others in every way we can.

May your seasons be blessed in every way and may
you keep this love of the season in your hearts
through out the coming years.

What a beautiful post for the holiday! You know why I miss Christmas in the Philippines? Because over there, even just a small gift can make the receiver happy but over here, I find it to costly to celebrate Christmas. Some people still complains for what they get.

Wishing you a merry Christmas Ms. Margaret!
