The Gift

Bright wrapping paper
Glossy, shiny bows
Warm lights twinkle
Shining in rows

Piles of presents
Under evergreen tree
Beckon to children
“Which one’s for me?”

Across the room
Nativity on display
Joseph, Mary, stable
God’s son in manger lay

Every true gift
Motivated by love
Descends from our father
In Heaven above

Those in bright colors
Are temporal today
Enjoyed for a moment
Later put away

Eternal life
Purchased by God’s Son
A gift that keeps on giving
Free to everyone

The next few weeks, in honor of the upcoming holidays, I will focus on giving and the true motivation behind it.
