My fiance and I got into Chicago last night through an annoying ordeal of waiting on the runway for 45 minutes and then our baggage for another 40 minutes. We have a busy week to look forward to, but we know we need to take the time to acknowledge and appreciate the meaning of today. The day of Christ's birth and his love and sacrifice for all of us.
I found a good poem on the web to share. Merry Christmas! May God truly bless this time for you and those important to you!
THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
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 baby
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.
