Holly or Holy?
I originally posted this Christmas 2011, but thought I needed a reminder, so I am sharing it again.
Thanks for visiting me at NennPen. Have a blessed and merry Christmas!
This season, will I…
be surrounded by presents
or be surrounded by His presence?
have childlike wonder at the magic of Christmas
or wonder at the child – the meaning of Christmas?
watch a Christmas movie
or watch Christmas move me?
see snow fall
or His kingdom reign?
take my wishes to Father Christmas
or my prayers to the Heavenly Father?
sit by the crackling fire
or have a Holy Fire within me?
shop ’til I drop
or drop everything for Him?
enjoy a sleigh ride
or remember Jesus slain?
sing Christmas carols at people
or actually be caring for people?
have a piece of pie, good desserts
or know peace on earth, good will to men?
sit in awe of the Christmas tree
or stand in awe of Calvary’s tree?
wish all a Merry Christmas
or think of Mary’s Christmas?
hang beautiful lights,
or see the light of the world?
manage my time
or spend time at the manger?
attach a bow
or bow my knee?
Such an amazing gift,
this season, this reason.
This Christmas, Lord,
may I be wrapped up in you.
