Christmas Essence – The Gift

christmas-candle-eve-436138_640

Fifty-three words wrap the miracle of Christmas into this simple poem describing the Gift and miracle that is Christmas in the hearts and spirits of believers.

Christmas is built upon a beautiful and intentional paradox; that the birth of the homeless should be celebrated in every home.” — G.K. Chesterton

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” — Isaiah 9:6

THE GIFT

Peace
Eternity
Restoration.

Traditions pass away
When the people
Of tradition
Pass away.

Christmas isn’t
Presents
Food
Decoration
Excess.

Christmas is
Good News
Miracles
A promise
Love.
Above all, love.

When traditions fade
And the old guard is
Memory
Remember the Gift.

The Gift
Forever new
Forever true
That cannot pass away.

Jesus.
