What Would You Give Jesus For Christmas?

What would you give Jesus for Christmas?

I realize that may seem like a silly question, after all,

Jesus is our gift!

But imagine with me for a moment being invited into His presence, and wanting to offer Him a gift.

What would you give?

Join with me in imagining a very special gift to Jesus with this heart-warming poem by Jane Sears  . . .


Gift To Jesus-a dog , by Jane L. Sears

I wish that someone had given little Jesus a dog

as loyal as mine

to sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes

and adore Him for being divine.
As Our Lord grew to manhood, His own faithful dog

would have followed Him all through the day

while he preached to the crowds and made the sick well

and knelt in the Garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away

to face death alone and apart,

with no tender dog following close behind

to comfort its Master’s heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn,

how happy He would have been

as His dog kissed

His hand and barked its delight

for the One who died for all men!
