Back to Home for the Holidays!
FOR IF WE LIVED;
Christmas is more than a day, at the end of the year,
More than a season of joy and good cheer,
Christmas is really God's pattern for living
To be followed all year by unselfish giving...
for the holiday seasons awakens good cheer
And draws us closer to those we hold dear,
And we open our hearts and find it is Good
To live among men as we always should...
But as soon as the tinsel is stripped from the tree
The spirit if Christmas fades silently
Into the background of daily routine
And is lost in the whirl of life's busy scene,
And all unawares we miss and forego
The greates blessings that mankind can know...
For if we lived Christmas each day as we should
And made it our aim to always be good,
We'd find the lost key to meaningful living
That comes not from getting but from unselfish giving...
And we'd know the great joy of peace upon earth
Which was the real purpose of our Saviour's birth
For in the glad tidings of the first Christmas Night,
God showed us the way, the truth and te light!
