Reason to Celebrate...




It’s not in the lights
The shortbread, fruitcake
It’s not in the special
Christmas cards that we make
Though each are their own gift
They would lose their delight
If God had not so loved us
On that first Christmas night

It’s not in the presents
Underneath the tree
Not in decorations
So lovely to see
The wonderful carols
Would not fill us with mirth
If God had not given
His Son to this earth

…and here IS the reason
We celebrate thus
God in His mercy
Gave His Son to us
So that all who believe
Will not perish in sin
But they will receive
Eternal life through Him

Janet

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

to those who are saying ...huh?:) I'm postponing my 'break'...a little;))
