The Gift

Searching for a gift
But little time to go
For the stress is high
And I just don’t know.

Most gifts are short term
But one is forever
And meaningful
For any endeavor.

The gift of a Savior
Born in this season
Is the true reason
My stress is easing.

Because of this babe
Born in a manger
To be our Savior
And a real game changer.

This time is glorious
Bringing peace with our fate
And our ticket through
The pearly gates.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    My pastor for many years Steve Ramsdell once said in a sermon, “Why put off a gift that you can use for a lifetime and beyond? It is the gift of God’s love for us through His Son”. This poem was inspired by this thought. Have a Merry Christmas!
