What do I need ?

We unwrapped our Christmas presents,
we are happy with the gifts we received.
Now it's time to reflect on the year of 2013.
Is it possible there is something missing?
Some essential that you long to have or do.
What would it be?
We are not talking about money or possessions,
but something vital for your life.
Read the following poem and ask yourself,
if you need the seven essentials I posted.
TIME, that is what I need is time,
To live this life and leave my past behind.
SMILE, that is what I need and it can be done,
To put on a smile and show it to everyone.
LOVE, that is what I need in my heart,
To embrace this feeling right from the start.
FRIEND, that is what I need is a friend,
Someone who will be there till the end.
PRAY, that is what I need to do is pray,
To seek the Lord and call on him today.
PEACE, that is what I need is peace within,
I can find it when I let God come in.
LIFE, that is a gift I know is mine,
All I need to do is let it shine.

It's Christmas

The word became flesh on the very night.
When the shepherds saw the beautiful sight.
It was our Savior Jesus who was born.
He came from heaven in the early morn.
It was that night when salvation had begun.
When God had sent his beloved Son.
He came down to save us from our sin.
We could surely see God's love within.
He died on the cross for our sake.
So that our bondage of sin would break.
So every Christmas we recall that day.
When we proclaim that it's Jesus birthday.
MERRY CHRISTMAS
