Running to Stand Still Just another day in the life….

Reminder

I truly love this time of year. I love the decorations, the food (Aunt Deborah’s mint-chocolate bars), the smells, the cold, snowy nights (wait, we don’t have those anymore)…it’s just a great time of year. What I don’t love, is how easily I forget what I really should be focusing on and celebrating.
I saw this poem on a website the other day…just thought it was a unique reminder of the true reason for the season.
[audio:OHolyNight.mp3]
T housands of years ago,
R evealed by prophets of the past,
U nder the dark and starry night,
E mmanuel was born at last.
C overed in His swaddling clothes,
H onor was given to the newborn King,
R epresenting peace and goodwill to all men,
I t’s because of Him that the angels did sing.
Sent by King Herod to find Him,
T hree wise men were led by a star,
M yrrh, gold and frankincense were given,
A s gifts from the men from afar.
S tanding in awe at the manger,
M agi worshipped and gave praise joyfully,
E ventually this child would grow older,
A nd give His life for you and for me.
N ow as we set apart a special day of the year,
I n remembrance for all who believe,
N ever forget why our Father did send Him,
G od’s gift is the greatest we’ll ever receive.
