Gift Exchange

nativity-ornamentby Nancy Tichy, Author for KidZ at Heart International

For years we’ve taken
slick exchanges for
the world’s first Christmas gift

Spending so much
we have so little

Trivia trapped
convention-bound tradition
smothers the invisible
with its avalanche of things
Affluence’s heaped up presents scant substitute for Heaven’s riches

Do anthems still ring welcome?
Hush!
Come, my stable-heart
cross pierced
receive His life

God’s great exchange
at infinite cost
