Instead of adoring Santa Claus
Instead of adoring Santa Claus, children should adore God and his son.
When it comes to who should be thanked, they are the ones.
If God hadn't sent his son down here, Christmas wouldn't even exist.
When children want to give thanks, God and Jesus shouldn't be dismissed.
Some children who read this poem may be miffed.
But on Christmas day, they should thank God and Jesus for their gifts.

I agree whole heartily.  We have commercialized Christmas almost to the point of taking Jesus out of it.  We have a local radio station that plays  just Christmas music from Thanksgiving until Christmas Day.  Very seldom do they ever play a carol that mentions Christ.  It is all the junk designed to part us with our money  with Christ only passively mentioned.




Santa's Prayer







 Father ,                                                     



Please help me keep a humble heart



with thoughts focused on Thee,



for I too am loved throughout the world



and too many are watching me.







I'm not the one whose birthday shines



throughout this troubled earth.



‘Twas Jesus Christ, so long ago,



who changed mankind by birth.







It was Jesus who died for us



that we might return to Thee.



It is this son, who deserves Thy praise,



not Santa .... No .... not me.







It was this Son who gave to man



the stories of Thy great love.



It was Jesus who showed to man



true love from up above.







 Father,                                          



I kneel and pray to Thee,



love Christ as I love Thee.



And to help me keep a humble heart,



please ... shine Thy love through me.

Randy,


   Santa is a semblance of things.


Christ & the spirit of Christmas is real.


Thanks for the reminder.


 


Merry Christmas,


 


Jamieson
