When you Walk Along the Way

Just a place to share my thoughts as I seek to serve my husband, raise my children and Glorify my God!

The best present December 18, 2008

presentThe best present ever given was wrapped in swaddling clothes

It did not come with tags or with any special bows

The best present ever given was laid in a food trough

It did not come in a room filled with stuff

The best present ever given was not out of goodness or merit

It did not come because any of us deserved it.

The best present ever given was God’s only son

He came as a human, the only sinless one.

The only tree that ever to the gift mattered

Was the one he later died on and sin shackles shattered.

The lights of Christmas twinkled in his eyes

For the light of the World in that manger lied.

No stockings, no trimmings, no cookies or cute songs

Only praises from Angels and stars shining strong

Today our Christmas is focussed on magic and wonder

But on the Christ born that day do we even ponder

Do we give him the honor and Glory he deserves

Or do we merely our Christmas dinners serve?

Are we broken over our unworthiness and need for his birth

Do we worship our Savior or do we worship us first?
