‘Jesus Is Better Than Santa’
Hopefully everyone had as good a Thanksgiving as we did. More than 20 family members enjoyed the day at Johnny and Anna’s home, eating and visiting, and outside activities.
My days following included many visits with loved ones every day.
One family was set up the day before, for members to come together for breakfast, then all went their way for other reunions.
Now, for some reminders for the next holiday.
“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 water.
Santa comes once a year; Jesus is ever present help.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited; Jesus stands at your door and knocks.
Santa makes you stand in line to see him; 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 asks, “Little boy, little girl, what is your name?”; Jesus knew our name before we did.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly; Jesus has a heart full of love.
Santa offers “Ho, ho, ho.” Jesus offers health, help and hope.
Santa says, “You better not cry”; Jesus says, “Cast all your cares on me.”
Santa’s little helpers make toys; Jesus makes new lives, mends hearts, repairs broken homes.
Santa may make your chuckle; Jesus gives you Joy.
Santa puts gifts under your tree; Jesus became one gift and died on the tree.
There’s really no comparison. Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
Happy birthday to Nancy Martsching, Joyce Miller, Sara Bradley, Dax Moreton, Angelina Myers, Hannah Pitts, Melissa Hutchens, Curt Roberts, David Latta, Weston Luttrell, Marilyn Tate.
Happy years, all!
