Is Christmas Just a Kid-Thing?

Is Christmas just a kid-thing,
Doing what you did, thing?
Or is there meaning for us of older size?

Is it toys and decorations,
Gift-y celebrations,
Or does Christ’s birthday still apply?

Past the lights and past the sales,
Past the Santa fairy tales,
Finding where the truth of the holiday lies.

Ancient written proclamation
Became historic declaration,
Amazing revelation to those ready and wise.

When we are sincerely seeking
And honesty is speaking
The truth of Jesus in the Bible can arise.

Invite the Lord into your heart,
Make Christmas this year your new start;
His love, forgiveness, and joy will shine in your eyes!
