Christmas Gifts

Christmas time of red and green
what does it all really mean?
People come and people go,
with packages of ribbons and bows.

Their gifts mean nothing
if not given in love,
if not filled with God
from heaven above.

I have a gift from Jesus to share,
because for you, I really care.
I'll share this gift with a big
pretty bow,
I'll say it all straight in a row.

Love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, gentleness and self-control,
from the Bible this message is clear,
these are the best gifts for Christmas
and through out the year.

The book of Galatians makes it clear
for the fruit of the Spirit
we must persevere.
In God this is the higher call,
against such there is not law.

The character of heaven
our fruit is known by what is given,
more beautiful than ornaments on
a Christmas tree,
the gift from God for you and me.

Give away for all to share
the joy of glad tidings everywhere,
herald the angels sing, peace
on earth good will to men.

Perfectly wonderful sentiment that you've shared with us here!

Be careful of predictable rhymes like "love" and "above", and forced rhymes like "bow" and "row"--avoiding these will bump your poetry up a notch.

I wish everyone shared your thoughts on Christmas!
