Best Christmas gift ever

I sat on a deacon's bench in my kitchen and read the words "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." I realized this was the truth, and I accepted Jesus at the moment.

For me, Jesus was and is the greatest gift I have ever received. He is the most important gift you can ever receive. I wrote this poem, and now share it each year at Christmas to let people know that, of all the gifts under the tree, none will touch a heart like Jesus.

Wrapped in scarlet, ribboned in beige
Bought with a love that conquers the grave
Presented with kindness, compassion and care
Receiving
I open
And find Jesus there.

Open your heart and receive Jesus. You will be glad you did.
