The letter "Yes, there is a Santa!" from Pete and Sharon Logan, moved me to respond with a poem:
Face it - we all love Santa Claus,
but every Christmas, somebody
puts him down -
reminds us that "Christ is the center
Once I saw a picture of the baby Jesus
held in His mother's arms
dressed in a red suit trimmed in white.
That was a shock!
Made a lot of people mad.
The Lord Jesus is the living Child -
the heart of Christmas.
Everything else is just swaddling clothes.
A Santa suit reminds me of
undemanding love -
go dressed in red
And leave presents
who'll never know
And, to the thanks of the Logans, I add "Thank you, whoever you are, for showing the spirit of love - may your tribe increase!"
