When a tie or a fruitcake just won’t do,
When Santa has lost his disguise;
Holidays can be more than glitter
When honesty opens our eyes.
What we need is love, peace, and forgiveness,
Wisdom for life’s decisions shown;
Only God offers these realities,
His presence makes the truth be known.
Turn aside from Christmas trivia,
You want more than parties and fun;
Confess your shortcomings and problems,
Then celebrate what He has done.
