December 1st

December 1st
Jesus Christ was born this day, so many years before
He came a servant to the lost, though he was Lord of Lords
We celebrate this joyous time, reflecting on His birth
Not born in a mansion, but a stable, as if He had no worth
He came so He could identify, with the human heart of man
And gave His life as a sacrifice, offering a better plan
A plan that reconciles us back, to our loving Father God
Bringing hope and redemption from, sins ruling iron rod
For this is the only reason that we should celebrate this day
To become focused on anything else, would take the meaning away
So let’s arise with joy in our hearts, and share it with everyone
The meaning of Christmas will always be, the birth of Jesus – God’s son
(Poet – M.S. Lowndes)

Heavenly Father,
As Christmas nears, and the hustle and bustle begins, please keep our hearts and minds on the true meaning.
Faith is the light of Christmas; warming our homes with the truth; that You, oh Lord, sent your son to pay for our sins. Thank you, for sending your son to earth as a baby so long ago. Restore the joy of Christmas to my heart and help me to relax each day and make time for You, my one true source of happiness and joy.
We are grateful, Lord Jesus as we celebrate your birth. Help us see the world through your eyes, help us see all that we have, and help us see the true meaning of Christmas.
May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving, for it's not about what your get, but what you give.
Guide me God, show me the path to make this truly the most wonderful time of the year.

I'm a day late posting this-sorry. 
Your Country Rose,
Gabrielle W.
