WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN TO YOU? -DECEMBER 25 1991- --------------------------------------------------- DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN THE TIME FOR THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS? WHAT SIGNIFICANCE DOES "1000 POINTS OF LIGHT" MEAN TO YOU ANYWAY? DOES KRIS KRINGLE OR THE FAMOUS SANTA CLAUS, COME THAT DAY TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE TRUE MEANING OF THIS SPECIAL HOLY-DAY {or holiday}? IF KRISMAS--MEANS THE SAME AS X-MAS...IS {CHRIST'S} NAME FORSAKEN? DOES IT ONLY MEAN A HOLI-DAY FOR EXCHANGING GIFTS WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS? SINCE THE THREE WISEMEN STARTED THE GIFT GIVING ON THE 1st CHRISTMAS SHOULD IT BE CONTINUED AS IT IS NOW? WITH LITTLE CHARITY TO STRANGERS? DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN TO YOU- JUST A DAY TO BE MERRY AND JOLLY? REALLY IS CHRISTMAS JUST A SEASON OR REASON TO HAVE MERRIMENT & FUN? DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN A DAY THAT YOU GO TO MIDNIGHT SERVICES OR MASS... AND AFTER COMING HOME AND OPENING YOUR PRESENTS, WE STAY UP LATE AND PARTY HEARTY, SOME OF US GET DRUNK AND SLEEP AWAY THE HOLY DAY. DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN A DAY WHEN WE PIG OUT ON TURKEY OR HAM AND DO WE EVER GIVE MORE THAN A QUICK PRAYER-- OR A THOUGHT OR DAMN FOR THOSE THAT HAVE NOT--- LIKE THAT POOR NEIGHBOR SAM? DO WE ALWAYS MAKE CERTAIN THAT WE ONLY GIVE GIFTS TO ONLY THOSE THAT HAVE ARRANGED TO GIVE BACK TO US IN RETURN? IS CHRIST ON OUR LIST? CAN WE SEE NOW WHAT CHRISTMAS HAS MEANT TO US BY OUR PAST TRADITIONS? CAN WE UNDERSTAND WHY CHRISTMAS TO SOME, IS NO MERRY DAY OF FUN? THOSE POOR THAT HAVE NO MONEY TO BUY GIFTS FOR OTHERS FEEL REAL BAD. FOR IF CHRISTMAS MEANS A MERRY DAY OF MATERIALISTIC GIVING & RECEIVING THEN THOSE UNFORTUNATE FOLKS DO FEEL SOMEWHAT DEPRESSED AND SAD! IT SEEMS THAT THIS IS THE ACCEPTED NORM BY MANY PEOPLE THESE DAYS NOT TO GIVE UNLESS YOU GET! FOR ISN'T THIS THE--- AMERICAN WAY? SO HEY... I'M SORRY THEN IF YOU DID GIVE ME A PRESENT OR GIFT THIS YEAR... FOR IT SEEMS THAT DO TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND MY CONTROL THAT I CAN NOT AFFORD TO GIVE YOU A GIFT IN RETURN, OH MY DEAR... ALL I CAN GIVE YOU NOW IS THIS LITTLE SORT OF A CHEAP PAPER TELLAPOEM: AND THE WORDS ON THIS THERMAL PAPER WILL FADE AWAY WITH TIME BUT I HOPE WHAT YOU READ WILL BE RETAINED BY YOUR MIND... YOU SEE, THANKS TO THIS NEW WORLD ORDERS PLAN FOR WORLD ECONOMY, MANY...MANY PEOPLE WILL FEEL THE SAME ABOUT CHRISTMAS AS ME... JESUS SAID THAT IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE... SO I HOPE YOU FEEL THAT WAY AND WILL NOT BE ANGRY OR POSSIBLY GRIEVE. IF YOU DO FEEL LIKE GIVING A LITTLE MORE THIS YEAR...OR NEXT THE SALVATION ARMY WHERE YOU LIVE, COULD USE MORE PEOPLE THAT CARE. FOR THE SALVATION ARMY REALLY HELPS THE HOMELESS AND POOR OUT THERE! NEXT YEAR OUR ECONOMY MAY BE WORSE I HAVE READ THIS IN MANY TEXTS YES, WE DO THANK GOD THAT WE ARE NOT YET ON THE STREET WE DO HAVE A ROOF OVER OUR HEADS AND STILL SOMETHING YET TO EAT. - PAGE 02- ISN'T IT TRUE IN THE USA... THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE MUCH BETTER OFF THAN WERE JOSEPH-MARY & JESUS OF LONG--LONG AGO? SO HEY! THEY WERE JUST POOR STRANGERS WITH NO PLACE TO STAY. THE HOLY-DAY INNS- YES THEY WERE ALL FULL (or awful) THAT NIGHT, WE ALL DO KNOW THE TRUE STORY OF THAT 1st CHRIST-MAS DAY'S PLIGHT. REMEMBER?...TIS DECEMBER- AND MANY PEOPLE & PLACES ON EARTH ARE COLD. LET'S TRY TO PUT JESUS CHRIST BACK IN OUR CHRIST-MAS AGAIN, JUST LIKE HE WAS IN DAYS OF OLD. AND JUST THINK IF EVERYONE DID... WOULD'NT CHRIST-MAS BE GREAT? A SEASON FULL OF LOVE AND PEACE & CHARITY TO ALL--- INSTEAD OF WAR-GREED -CORRUPTION- MATERIALISM AND HATE! SEEMS THAT TODAY WITH OUR EARTHS NEW WORLD ORDER, THIS ANTI-CHRIST SELF SERVING ATTITUDE IS ALL WE CAN FIND! THIS ANTI-CHRIST WORLD PUTS THE CHRISTIANS IN QUITE A BIND. AND I'M CERTAINLY TIRED OF IT ALL, THAT'S THE REASON FOR THIS RHYME... WE ARE STILL PRAYING & WISHING & HOPEING FOR EVERYONE THE VERY BEST... AND MAY G O D OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN CONTINUE TO BLESS. AS LONG AS WE DO REMEMBER TO REPENT AND CONFESS! YES---FRIENDS STRANGERS FAMILY AND NEIGHBORS...IT'S OUR CHOICE... WHICH SHALL WE CHOOSE THIS CHRIST-MAS DAY? SHALL WE HELP THE POOR AND LET G O D REJOICE? OR SHALL WE KEEP ON A DOING AND GOING THE SAME WRONG WAY? WE KNOW IT IS SOMETHING HARD TO DO... TO SHARE OTHERS RELIGIOUS VIEWS. BUT CAN ANYONE DISPUTE THAT JESUS WAS BORN 1991 YEARS AGO AS A JEW?! SO AS CHRISTIANS OR RELIGIOUS OF VARIOUS BELIEFS AND DENOMINATIONS... ON THIS ONE POINT WE CAN ALL AGREE ACROSS ALL NATIONS. IT ACTUALLY MAKES NO DIFFERENCE IN WHICH BIBLE WE DO READ OR REALLY WHICH CHURCH CLAIMS TO HAVE THE RIGHT CREED... FOR IF YOU TRUELY BELIEVE THAT G O D IS OUR HEAVENLY FATHER THEN ARE WE NOT ALL SISTERS AND-OR BROTHERS? THE WORD SAID- THAT WE MUST L O V E THEM ALL, AND CARE FOR OTHERS... WHETHER THEY BE FAMILY OR FRIENDS OR STRANGERS OR { BUGGERS?} I AM POSITIVE THAT YOU HAVE ALL NO-DOUBT HEARD OF THIS BEFORE BUT NOT FROM ME, MY SILENT HCT MINISTRY, AND THAT'S FOR SURE! WHAT MORE CAN I SAY? HAVE A FINE HOLY DAY...OR HOLIDAY... MAY G O D S PEACE AND LOVE BE WITH US ALL
