IF YOUR TINSEL’S IN A TANGLE
Is your tinsel in a tangle?
Is your wreath hung at an angle?
Are you starting to feel stressed and quite undone?
Is your credit card maxed out?
Are the kids bored, in a pout?
Have you given up the hope of having fun?
Well, forget the tangled messes
And the aggravated voices,
And forget about more shopping that’s not done.
Stop the hassle and the frazzle;
Look away from what bedazzles
To the reason for the season. There’s just one.
Jesus Christ – He is the reason.
His birth brought about the season,
For the Father gave His one and only Son.
If you’ll focus on His coming,
You will hear your heart start humming,
And will find your merry Christmas has begun.
