The Gift Left Under the Tree

Though we may not say it,

we all want peace.

Though we may not admit it,

we get tired.

Though we may hide it,

we yearn to be



and forgiven.

So while we’re out shopping

for gifts to give to others,

God hopes we remember

the gift He gave to us,

And finally unwrap the box that’s always left under the tree

so we’ll see that He already knew

and gave us what we always wanted.
