Do you know where your Advent wreath is?

I was recently in a local shop to buy my daughter a birthday present and Jingle Bells was playing as well as other "holiday" songs! It was only November 10th! On that note, I am posting this fun yet poignant piece below which I received in an email. I hope you like it. :)

Twas the Month before Christmas

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

See the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ' Holiday'.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say


not Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet


Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!

If you agree please forward, if not, simply delete.

Get your wreath ready!
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT and even briefly let us know how you will be celebrating the Advent season in your domestic church as well as Christmas. What are some ways you will instill the real reason for the season into your family's hearts as well as to all you come in contact with. I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!


  1. I plan on doing a Jesse Tree this Advent, helps to keep our mind on what really important!
