Merry Christmas!


is better than Santa.
Santa lives at the North Pole;
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh;
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year;
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies;
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited;
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.
You have to stand in line to see Santa;
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap;
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn't know your name,
JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly;
JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO;
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says, "You better not cry!"
JESUS says, "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you."
Santa's little helpers make toys;
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle, but....
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree,
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

It's obvious there is really no comparison.

We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.

Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Lord bless and watch over you and your loved ones this Christmas, and may He prosper and bless the work of your hands in the New Year!

Brooke thank you so much for this reminder. People often forget the true meaning of Christmas and this short piece demonstrated what we need to see in this holiday season. God bless and Merry Christmas.

Brookey Thank you SOOOOOO much!!!!! This was great! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know I had the BEST Christmas I've ever had in my 29 years of life... AND the hysterical part was Austin & I didn't buy each other anything!!! LOL. But we appreciated the day we spent with each other & our family and it made it wonderful!

Brooke,great post! Even I must admit getting caught up in the gift giving and not focusing on the true reason for the season.
