It is not Santa Claus or children’s stories that this season is about,
But rather it is children, be they tall or short, thin or stout.
All children need to be told the truth, while they are very young,
That Christmas is a relationship about which songs are sung.
Society can try to change the meaning with decorations and things,
But it will always be the Christ Child for which the season rings.
Yet, it is not a relationship for a season,
For the Christ Child came for an eternal reason.
He came to be with you every day,
To be a part of your life in every way.
God came as the Christ Child to communicate with you and me,
He sent His Son not only to set us free.
God wants a relationship with us as His children every day,
Not for a season, or a holiday, or to celebrate in some mystic way.
So tell the children while they are young and can believe,
The story of the true Christmas, that they may always retrieve.
Let it be deep in their minds and warm in their hearts,
That relationship with the Christ Child would never be apart.
The children are the future, they should be our main focus,
We must teach them truth, not some magical hokus pokus.
The Ukrainian children pictured above,
From the transition home, are desperately in need of truth and love.
Tell the children so they may hear the true Christmas story today.
Let them have the chance for relationship with God in every way.
Relationship with God is the reason for the Christmas Season!
Have a very merry Christmas this year!
