Before you get entangled in the Christmas lights
Run to The Light of the World

Before your inner glutton feasts on Christmas lunch
Run to the One born in the House of Bread (Beth-lehem)
The Bread of Life that will always satisfy 

Before you panic over christmas gifts and what to get
Think about the Greatest Gift of all time
Your Redemption

Before you panic over guests coming over
Think of those who have no one

Before you get caught up in the hustle and bustle
Sit quietly at the feet of the King, 
Ponder on the miracle of Christmas
The King of the universe, born as a baby

Bread of Life

On that blessed morning
As Mary gave birth to her baby boy
and lay Him in the manger
the Bread of Life, born to give us life,
in the House of Bread (Beth- lehem)

The star pointed wise men from the East
to where the Light of the World,
 the Bright Morning Star
lay in human flesh
to come and Worship the newborn King

May we also now come
and Worship Him
as we reflect and ponder on 
the miracle of Christmas
The Messiah born
to bring us Life
- eternal life with Him.
