How could you LEAVE heavenly throne, descending to earth to make us your own?
How could you LIVE here, in Mary's womb, perfect baby, boy, man from manger to tomb?
Overwhelmed with the truth of your humble submission coming in flesh completing your mission I ask, how can I LOVE those far and near praying and telling your truth made clear?
And how can I LEAVE comfort and ease at Spirit's urging just you to please?
And how can I LIVE the gospel reveal, In values and actions, transparent, real?
O Jesus, the Christ, incarnate Word, crucified, risen, my Savior and Lord Christmas reminders, grace, mercy abound to this desperate sinner, so lost but now found!
Lastly, some immortal words from Dr. Seuss (from the Grinch):
“It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes, or bags!... Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!”
