5 sleeps until Christmas Day...
things too many; dizzying
torn this way and that
lost my reason for season
how to get it back?
It seems to me that the World has
lost sight of the meaning and message
of Christmas. The days leading up
to Christmas have be drowned in
meaningless advertising, rush and
bustle and a fever of purchasing.
I have lost my enthusiasm for the
world's variety of Christmas. So,
now I want to find my way back to
the peace that comes with the simple
reasons for the season. The birth of
the Savior of the world...Jesus.
Being able to write this helps
reaffirm what I believe. I do not
have to sell my soul to the merchandising
moguls of the world. I can still be just me.
