Meaningful Christmas (poem by me)

As I choose my Christmas tree, 
I meditate on the Trinity
For the pine is only one,
but its points consist of three. 

As I untangle a light string, 
I meditate on this awesome thing:
The light of the world is Jesus, 
my Messiah and my Holy King.

As I top the tree with a star, 
I see three wisemen from afar,
behold Mary hushing her Son,
through a stable door left ajar.

Underneath, I stack wrapped presents,
like jars of gold, myrrh, and frankincense,
Bestowed on a sleeping baby
who knew not their treasured contents.

When my kids run down the stair, 
Wrapping paper flies everywhere. 
Our smiles stretch from ear to ear,
as I read the Bible from my chair.
