Title:  Are We Missing Something?

After a long day of Christmas preparation, Annika plopped into a chair and looked around the room. Everything was in place. But something did not feel right. But nothing was wrong. She shrugged it off and started a pot of coffee. Then she felt it again. What was it? What was missing? Then she heard a voice. "What about me?" Startled she dropped her coffee cup all over the kitchen floor.
After cleaning it up she looked around. No one was in the house. Yet again she ignored the weird feeling. " What about me?"
Was there something she forgot? She glanced at the living room. Yes there was something. But what was it? She felt her pockets for the list of Christmas decorations. Instead of pulling out the crumpled list, she pulled out a piece of paper someone gave her. She read the bold print:
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! LUKE 2.
Then it hit her. She had forgotten her nativity scene. In fact. She had forgotten Jesus completely!
Annika had been so busy, that she had forgotten Jesus. So she put up her nativity. As she put the little glass character of baby Jesus, she looked in his eyes. He seemed to say, "I am the one you forgot about, why did you do that?"
" I really am sorry God." Annika said out loud. Annika pulled out her bible and started to read in Luke chapter 2.
Are you so wrapped up in Christmas preparations that you forget the true reason for Christmas?
I encourage you to read Luke 2.

Also I really like this poem!

What Is Christmas
By: Roxie Lusk Smith

It isn't just a starry night,
Or snowflakes on the ground.
It isn't just a merry hearth
With good friends gathered 'round.

It isn't just a Christmas tree,
Or gifts that play the part;
But Love and Peace
The season brings
To touch the seeking heart.


Christmas Blessings!
Amy
