‘Je­sus Is Bet­ter Than Santa’

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

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!
