“Every Knee Shall Bow” – Gaye Frances Willard

Santa’s Poem to baby Jesus
My dear precious Jesus, I did not mean to take your place,
I only bring toys and things and you bring love and grace.
People give me lists of wishes and hope that they came true;
But you hear prayers of the heart and promise your will to do.
Children try to be good and not to cry when I am coming to town;
But you love them unconditionally and that love will abound.
I leave only a bag of toys and temporary joy for a season;
But you leave a heart of love, full of purpose and reasons.
I have a lot of believers and what one might call fame;
But I never healed the blind or tried to help the lame.
I have rosy cheeks and a voice full of laughter;
But no nail—scarred hands or a promise of the hereafter.
You may find several of me in town or at a mall;
But there is only one omnipotent you, to answer a sinner’s call.
And so, my dear precious Jesus, I kneel here to pray;
To worship and adore you on this, your holy birthday.

Is this something that has been on Santa’s mind for many, many years, but never had enough time to write it down or shout it out from his sledge, being somewhat busy around Christmas? Well, at least I believe so. Maybe we should all give Santa a break sometimes to stop and think about what we truly need at this time?

Wishing you a wonderful Merry Christmas!
