The Essence of Christmas
Does it delight in the festivities, and positioning of the elegantly decorated gifts,under
the scented boughs of glittering lights, that sparkle in sequence, or a stillness shunning
the darkness? The magic of childhood, often fading in an adults heart, diminishing the
"givers" sparkle-surrendering unto naught, for the rest of the year.
The UNFORGOTTEN Prophecy-of the Saviors Birth-A sign extending the day into
the evening, shining forth into the following day and revealing a New Star. Christians
anxiously await the Prophecy to come forth and relsih in joy and truth.
With time, disbelievers increqased in numbers, mocking the proclamation of the "Birth",
while Christian believers were charged to renounce their beliefs or give their life,
On the morrow-"All gazed into the vast space of the heavens, watchful on this fateful
Then, exposing its brilliance, a change enlightens the sky!
In the silence of resolution the emotions of this miraculous sign, "unto all mankind!"
This gift of transcendence endorsed the Father and Son's Love for us!
Once the trial of the Faith, now emerges into a song of praise, each Christmas Day!
A spirit of Receiving is engulfing throughout the magnitude of Love with each rising
Sun! The Star reveres a Hope for "the children of man" embarked on a search
for Truth and fulfillment of prophecy.
Positioned under the majestic boughs of the Tree of Life, the Gift, and the Glory of
Eternal life-cultivating a wonderous spirit to "Receive" this ever present Light
and Knowledge-embracing the Essence of Christmas.
