Different Kind Of Christmas

A Different Kind Of Christmas
Modified from poem by Joanna Fuchs

Sometimes Christmas is just overwhelming, it seems,
As we rush around buying up stuff.
We spend without end, and we rack up those bills,
But it feels like it’s never enough.

So this Christmas, let’s all take a different approach:
Let’s try to be more in accord with God’s Christmas gift, the best one of all
Our Sweet Jesus, our Savior, our Lord.

We’ll be gentle and patient, and loving and kind,
 And we’ll keep our priorities straight;
The gifts of the spirit, the gifts of the heart,
Are the ones that we all need celebrate.

As we decrease the stuff our stress will decease,
For we’ll feel more at peace as we package and trim,
Our true Christmas gifts of joy and delight;
As we try to be much more like Him.
