Read Carefully

If you look for Me at Christmas,

you won't need a special star -

I'm no longer just in Bethlehem,

I'm right there where you are.

You may not be aware of Me

amid the celebrations --

You'll have to look beyond the stores

and all the decorations.

But if you take a moment

from your list of things to do

and listen to your heart, you'll find

I'm waiting there for you.

You're the one I want to be with,

you're the reason that I came,

And you'll find Me in the stillness

as I'm whispering your name.


Love,

Jesus

Do you write that poem? It's very touching and much needed. We get so caught up in what we have to get done that we really have to focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope your Christmas is very Merry!
