Jesus is the reason for the season

Microsoft Photo Editor 3.0 Picture
Jesus is Better than Santa.
Santa lives at the North Pole;
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh;
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year;
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies;
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited;
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.
You have to stand in line to see Santa;
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap;
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is, "Hi, little boy/girl. What's your name?"
JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly;
JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO;
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says, "You better not cry!"
JESUS says, "Cast all your cares on me for
I care for you."
Santa's little helpers make toys;
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle, but....
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree,
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.
It's obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.
With Thanksgiving just barely gone, I am already tired of all the signs and adds with an X in place of Christ in the word Christmas. When my good friend forwarded this on to me it rang true. I wish many people would stop for a moment and remember that the reason we celebrate Christmas is Christ and that is why it is called Christmas if it was not for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ then I think we would have a season called Santamas. Can you imagine saying Merry Santamas, it does not sound right, so stop for a moment and remember the true reason of Christmas is Christ or savior. May you all have a Merry Christmas. Love Melissa
