Looking at Christmas
Mother, please tell me-it’s Christmas again–
Why did the star shine in heaven back then?
“Heavenly Father was happy and He
Wanted the Nephites and Wise Men to see
Jesus was born, and the star was the sign
Telling the world that the Babe was divine.”
“Why was he born in a stable with hay?
Kings lived in palaces back in that day.”
Jesus Christ’s kingdom is heaven, you know.
Money and palaces stay here below.
He came to earth just to show us the way
We can be with Him in heaven one day.”
“Presents and toys, then, are
things of this earth.
Why do we give them to honor His birth?
“That’s a good question. My
child, you are wise,
Looking at Christmas through
Jesus Christ’s eyes.
Love is the answer. Love is the way
To properly celebrate Jesus
“God loved the world, so He
gave us His son.
Love for each other brings real
“Gifts giv’n when thinking of
only their worth,
Just like fine palaces, stay on
Thinking of others and showing
Brings happiness here and
great joy up above.”
With best wishes for the merriest Christmas ever,
