This Christmas . . .
I’m decorating my heart,
with the wrappings of God’s love
tying a ribbon around my soul
with His blessings from above.
I going to avoid all the malls,
and stop not at a single store
the only present I will give
is the One that will restore.
I’m giving the gift of forgiveness,
sending cards about His grace
I’m letting the glory of His birth
beam across my thankful face.
I’m opening up my home,
for everyone to come and see
the light of His beauty
so to celebrate His birth with me.
I’m serving a dish of Christmas joy,
and offering up God’s good cheer
we will feast upon His holiness
and rejoice that our Savior’s here.
I’m baking Him up a special cake,
singing to Him a birthday song
and a slice of His love and mercy
I’ll give out for all to take along.
I’m giving the offering of Jesus,
at naught at cost to me . . .
I’m sending out the message,
there is One gift that is free!
King James Version
“But Peter said unto him,
Thy money perish with thee,
because thou hast thought
that the gift of God
may be purchased with money.”
Deborah Ann Belka
Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
