A Christmas Gift for You

As we head into this final week leading up to Christmas, I’d like to share my annual Christmas poem with you. Just a little gift from me to you to help you celebrate the birth of our Lord. Believe it or not, this year marks thirty years that I’ve been including an original Christmas poem in my Christmas cards. I think that might make me old! :)

I’ll be taking a break from my normal blogging schedule. I plan to enjoy a wonderful Christmas with loved ones, and I pray that you will as well. I’ll post a photo or two in the next couple of weeks and will resume regular blogging in the new year. And now, I hope you’re blessed by “A Song of Christmas Praise”!

A Song of Christmas Praise

If I could write a Christmas song
It would be a song of praise,
An offering to my God and King
For this holy holiday.

From my heart the words would spring
My spirit would find the tune,
His glory from my lips would spill
Fresh love for Him would bloom.

For one joyous night so long ago
My Savior came to earth for me,
To rescue me from sin’s dark hold
To give me hope, to set me free.

And now I celebrate His birth
And if I could write a song,
It would be a song of Christmas praise
For to the Savior I belong!

“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12

*If you don’t have the joy of knowing Christ as your personal Savior, consider the following and accept Him today!

God loves you and wants you to have eternal life: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

But our sin stands in the way: “For all have sinned” (Rom. 3:23). “For the wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23

Jesus is the only way of salvation: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” John 14:6

Respond in faith and receive Jesus: “‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” Rom. 10:13; “Whoever is thirsty, let him come”. Rev. 22:17

A Prayer To Receive Christ: Lord, thank You for loving me. I believe You died to pay for my sin and You were raised from the dead to give me eternal life. Forgive my sins and come into my life and be my Savior and Lord. Help me to follow You. Amen.

Merry Christmas to one and all!
