The True Gift of Christmas

'Tis the day before Christmas and I'm in my chair
With the cat on my lap and without any care.
The groceries are purchased, the gifts are all bought,
The presents are gift-wrapped and I have just one thought --
The world is still seeking for that which fulfills
The longing of hearts that remain restless still.
This year may we open the True Gift of Christmas
And finally receive all our longing heart wishes --
His love and salvation, his presence and grace,
His life everlasting, provision and peace.
If you are still looking for that one perfect Gift,
Just open your heart and invite Jesus in.

A Grown-up Bedtime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
These burdens I don't have to keep
For Jesus says He'll carry them
If I will cast my cares on Him
Lord, thank you for a good night's rest
In you I am forever blessed!
