Christmas–a poem.๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘ผ

Christmas is for the poorโ€ฆ Christmas is for the weakโ€ฆ Christmas is for the refugeeโ€ฆ It’s for the lonelyโ€ฆand the meek. Itโ€™s the magic of Christmas that captures us. Christmas movies often portray beautiful families and almost always have a happy ending.

Christmas is not only about gifts under the tree, though. Itโ€™s about something greater. Itโ€™s not about what you get, but what youโ€™ve already got–a Savior. Christ entered, and as a man He changed the course of history. A human sacrifice.

He came for you and for me. Sent by God, the Holy Father, He performed miracles, signs, and wonders. Fully human and fully divine, He died and rose to redeem us. Christmas is about hope and peace.

It’s about a dark-skinned baby born among animals because no one would welcome him. How can we celebrate Christmas this season? Can we welcome Him into our hearts, or into our homes?
