The Gift Left Unopened

Christmas is officially over

along with...

the hustle
the bustle
the planning

and expectation

We have...

unwrapped
tossed to the side and
moved on to the next

still searching

as Jesus lay in the manger...
out on the lawn



And it may take a few days for us to get to Him

to remember
to realize

that the stuff will never truly satisfy us

But that our true gift has been left unopened

if we
left Jesus

out on the lawn as a baby...
still a baby...

in a manger

when what we should have done was let Him into

our house
our hearts
our homes

as God!
