christmas reflection

He made it so simple
there wasn't a tree or garland
there wasn't gifts when they woke up 
there wasn't a layout of food for all to eat
no one took a picture or sent a christmas card
it didn't even make the news, facebook, or instagram

but we make it so complicated
we make it stressful and convoluted
we worry about all the things related
we cringe when we see how many days until
we resent those who seem to have it together

"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them."

may you find the simple blessing of His birth this year

  1. We complicate Christmas so much. Thanks for the great reminder to keep it simple.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
