The Forgotten Christmas Birthday

‘Twas the night, the first Christmas

And all was so still

A birthday was coming

A manger to fill.

All of the animals

Anxious, await

The birth of a Savior

They stand at their gate.

Even they feel

How special, this day

To deliver & rescue.

Jehovah Mephalti, it does say

From the very beginning

That was His lot

To bring us salvation

Yet, we all forgot!

Jesus was born

That humble filled night

And silence was heard

And then, WOW, such fright!

The sky opened up

with Glory never seen

and Angels erupted.

“Hosanna! OUR KING!”

Caught the attention

Of shepherds and sheep

And wise men afar

A secret to keep!

Mary and Joseph

Held a new babe

Omnipotent power

God, He had gave

His only son

Jesus, our Lord

Happy Birthday, Jesus

How great our reward!

Christmas Wishes

We remember the past

The way it was written

So that it can last.

Don’t tell other stories

That cloud the real facts

Don’t rob Him of Glory

No Santa with sacks.

Why else do we give gifts

Each year on this day?

What sense does it make

Please tell me, do say?

Is there some other reason?

Can you can tell me?

Of why you all spend

Each single penny?

Keep up with the neighbors?

Show off to your friends?

I’m telling you, honey,

Who cares what you spend?

Christmas is a birthday

It comes every year.

Just like yours, silly,

Please listen, Please hear!

We celebrate JESUS

It’s fun and it’s joy.

It’s about that precious Savior

A King born a boy.

Inside that tiny package

Was Salvation for all

Now tell me again

Why you celebrate y’all?

Birthday Wishes

From me, unto you

Starting NOW, you forget

About Santa – PU.

And start spreading cheer!

Here is the truth!

Why Christmas is here

It’s a birthday we celebrate

On this day, every year.

Jesus was born

Eternities’ gift

That’s all folks

Until my next rift.

My son is my Christmas baby, he was born on December 8th. He gets to share his birthday month with Jesus. He gets to celebrate during the time of year when most houses are already lit up and sparkling, anticipating the birth of our KING. It a super exciting time of year for our Champion family.  

I can’t imagine how hurt he would be if he woke up on his birthday and I told him that we were NOT going to celebrate HIS birthday today. The house was all decorated for someone else’s birthday. We, instead, are in “awe in wonder” about a fat old dude, his deer, who all live in the north pole, and better still, no one has ever seen this guy, ever….he is imaginary.

I think I would try and sell the idea like this…

“But son, this fat guy, he is magical, he squeezed down our chimney and creepy ate all our cookies, but he left everyone else a bunch of presents all over the world, well….not really all over, not the poor people, they don’t get any presents. Not the people who don’t have money. Only people who can afford it. So, no, not everyone. Children in Haiti? No, not children in Haiti that we support. Nope, that break n’ enter-present-guy doesn’t go there.

So, back to my explanation, this birthday, son, it’s not for you anymore, we will concentrate on that old guy and the presents, songs, food, celebrations will be for people with money and not for you.

Again, just to be really clear, that is who we will celebrate today.  Not you, son, sorry! That fat dude stole your birthday, so he is a thief and a criminal too!  Yet still, it makes sense that we will celebrate him instead, so, from now on we are not going to celebrate your birth anymore.  Shrug.”

How sad would my little boy be?  How sad would our whole family be?  And how stupid would we look?  Wouldn’t people talk about us, consider us mean, cruel, nasty, heartless?  

hummmm… does that make you think about something else ridiculous that we do? Just wondering.

I’m not quite done with that thought….How ridiculous is it?  How stupid is that story?  Can you not understand how stupid it is to celebrate in imaginary-made up-fat dude in a leisure suit on the birthday of the ONE TRUE KING?

Nope, not this family. We are going to champion on in Truth, Love, Kindness, Grace, Joy, Peace and celebrate what is real and WHO is real. We will HONOR the KING OF ALL KINGS – Jesus Christ our LORD.

We will celebrate our one and only son too. We will not take away Jesus’ birthday, just as much as we would never take away the birthday of our son. We love him too much. And it Simply makes no sense.

Happy birthday son.  I am so glad you’re here.  You give my life so much Joy.  You have been here with us for 6 years now and I love you with such a full heart.  You’re energy is exhilarating.  I love watching you become a Powerful Man of God.  Your spirit is so beautiful and I pray that you Love Jesus forever, like you do now.  God bless you on this special birthday, December 8th.  

It is your day and I am so happy to make it JUST YOURS.  You deserve to have it.

Please remember why December 25th is Jesus’ special day.  That is my only Christmas/Birthday wish.
