“Holiday Greetings”

Well Christmas time is almost here
And we enhance the joy of giving
Yes the Christ Child that once in a manger lay
Has changed our style of living.
 
Most every yard is lit up
With bright lights for all to see
In most every home somewhere you’ll find
A very special Christmas Tree.
 
Now the presents will be wrapped up
So the gifts they do not show
Yet take it from me, viewing the size and shape
What it is each youngster will know.
 
We try to please each child with toys
For all would like some of those
Still if we would stick to reality
The need is for good warm clothes.
 
The Wisemen three did travel far
Across the open desert sand
Guided only by a star
On their way to a strange land.
 
They were heading off to Bethlehem
Bearing gifts along the way
Searching for a special manger
In which the baby Jesus soon would lay.
 
Now Christians all await Christmas Eve
For then its soon to be Christmas Morn
Yes and through the excitement don’t forget to remind
It’s the day our Savior was born.
 
May all have a blessed Christmas.
