Goodness, here it is a week before Christmas. Where has this year gone? Really, where has this month gone? The time seemed to have passed quickly. We've endeavored to savor every moment and enjoy the season before it rapidly disappears. Yet, before we realized it, tomorrow has arrived and yesterday is a fleeting thought. After pondering about Christmas and it's meaning, We felt inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this poem to share. Please enjoy it and take to heart the emphasis of it's message.
THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Pastors Michael & Ginny Gulotta
Tis the week before Christmas, and all through the town,
People are scurrying all around.
Decorations and ornaments were all hung,
With excitement encircling all of the young.
Presents were bought and wrapped real pretty,
Being delivered from city to city.
There’s festivities and feasting all around,
Caroling and joyful celebrations resound.
Yet amidst all this commotion,
There’s still a strong notion,
That Christmas is for Christ,
And not all the hype.
The birth of a baby, the Savior, A King,
Is the first and foremost reason we sing.
It’s time to celebrate and rejoice
Giving reason for Christmas a spiritual voice.
So when you’re gazing upon all the seasonal lights
with wonder, amazement and marvelous delight,
Remember to ponder, review and reflect,
On Jesus the Messiah, God’s present exact.
Is. 9:6 "For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Pastors Michael & Ginny Gulotta
Pro. 11:25 "The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself."
