The Gift for Every Day!

Once a year a world of cheer

and hopeful joy rings out.

Once a year the question is raised..

..and a once in a lifetime miracle is talked about.

But for the heart that believes,

the mind that already knows..

our once a year becomes a daily expression

of gratitude and praise.

There is no ‘once a year’ for God’s family..

For every sunrise ushers in a

Christmas or Easter day..

We pay respect to the circumstance..

No guestroom open for him.

Our King came forth from a virgin

As foretold..

For the new way to begin.

And though you’d expect more for a king,

That’s not the way it went.

No royal reception, no thunderous applause,

a truly humble beginning for him.

For his name shall be

Emmanuel or “God with us”.

The Savior of the world.

Prince of Peace. Bread of Life.

Mighty Counselor.

The Way.

There is no ‘once a year’ for God’s family..

For every sunrise ushers in a

Christmas or Easter day.

That one moment in history,

a beautiful gift of God’s grace.

When he sent his Son to live among,

The broken human race.

So arrange your decorations, and sing your favorite song.

Place ornamented trees and wrapped luxuries..but

Share as one

in the birth of God’s son,Jesus Christ, who came to be..

The one who saved the world,

Our only way to God, the true definition of free.

No, there is no ‘once a year’

For those who belong

To God’s family.
