The Holiday Season is Upon Us

Posted On 12/08/2011

A wonderful reminder to us all the “Reason for the Season”


The holidays are upon us. Christmas music started right after Halloween. We stuffed ourselves for Thanksgiving then stood in line for hours on “black Friday” trying to get that special item ½ off that we knew someone on our list wanted. For some of us, we stress over what to buy, how much to spend and who all we have to buy for. As we bustle along, working, shopping, sleeping only to get up and do it all over again we forget what the meaning of Christmas really is. As I realized this, a poem I once read came to mind so I am sharing it with all of you in hopes it will serve as a reminder to us all the “Reason for the Season”.

The True Meaning of Christmas

Jesus Christ was born this day
So many years before 
He came a servant to the lost 
Though he was lord of lords 
We celebrate this joyous time 
Reflecting on his birth 
Not born in a mansion, but a stable 
As if he had no worth 
He came so he could identify 
With the human heart of man 
And gave his life as a sacrifice 
Offering a better plan 
A plan that reconciles us back 
To our loving father god 
Bringing hope and redemption from 
Sins ruling iron rod 
For this is the only reason 
That we should celebrate this day 
To become focused on anything else 
Would take the meaning away 
So let’s arise with joy in our hearts 
And share it with everyone 
The meaning of Christmas will always be 
The birth of Jesus – Gods son
- M.S. Lowndes

Happy Holidays to all of you from the Homecare by Design team.
