Give Love This Christmas

Down through the ages men and women have learned the lesson of the manger.
A simple place, a simple message to those who simply believe it –
God loves us and sent his perfect son to an imperfect world
so we could know love.
Love is the gift.
Give love this Christmas.
Wrap it in a box, bake it in a pie,
shine it through the darkness of your loneliness.
Hang your expectations on the branches of a tree,
wind unending love around your disappointments,
allow tears of grief
to mingle with hope
and celebrate the gift given that first Christmas.
Celebrate Love,
perfect Love.
