A woman was Christmas shopping with her two children.
After many hours of walking down row after row of toys and
After hours of hearing both her children asking for everything
They saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the
Store elevator with her two children in hand.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday
Season time of year, getting that perfect gift for every
Single person on our shopping list, overwhelming pressure to
Go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday
Food and treats, making sure we respond to
Everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened revealing a crowd in the car.
She pushed her way in and dragged her two kids and all her
Bags of stuff in with her.

As the doors closed she couldn't take it anymore and blurted
Out, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be
Found, strung up, and shot."

From the back of the car, a quiet calm voice responded,
"Don't worry, we've already crucified Him." The rest of the
Trip down was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

Don't forget this year to keep the One who started this whole
Christmas thing in your every thought, deed, purchase, and
Word. If we all would just think how much better this world
Would be.

Jesus is the reason for the season. Wise men still seek Him.
