It's now 1:20a on Christmas morning and I just finished wrapping presents. Hope by this time you're fast asleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in your head. If you have little ones, no doubt you will be up in a few short hours as their internal alarm clocks will ring in anticipation of discovering Santa's gifts. Those days are over for us, but I enjoy this season of life as well as it's much more laid back... and I get to sleep later too.
I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and leave you with the poem my wife wrote to enclose in our Christmas cards this year.
TIME TO GO
Time to go the Father said
as He sent His Son to earth.
Time to go said Joseph to Bethlehem
where the virgin Mary would give birth.
Time to go the angels said
to the shepherds on the hill.
Time to go the magi said
to find the King who brings peace & good will.
Time to go the Spirit prompts
to the foot of the tree where Jesus died.
To behold the Lamb that takes away
the sins of the world as the prophets testified.
Time to go down on your knees
and accept Christ's atonement for your sin.
Time to go and spread the Word
of how Christmas did truly begin.
