An Unforgetable Christmas

Updated on December 20, 2011

An Unforgetable Christmas


I can never forget as long as I live

That one particular Christmas of 1991

A Christmas that is truly different from the rest

It is not a prosperous Christmas

Its is not a romantic Christmas

It is not a gift-packed Christmas

It is a Christmas devoid of material things

It is a Christmas devoid of romance

It is indeed the most humbling Christmas ever

When I fully realized my utter depravity

It is one Christmas I could sense deeply

The revelation of God’s love in my life

That I had been away from Him for so long

And this Christmas the prodigal daughter has come home

What a great joy, joy unspeakable follows

I cannot fully explain it, I cannot fully describe it

All my hurts and hatred were gone then, including all my selfish ambitions

A great love overflows from my heart for people around me

I could sense deeply how much I am greatly loved by God

And knowing such love of God, it makes my life complete

Inspite of all my broken dreams and broken hearts

As long as I live this particular Christmas will remain in my memories

For it is one Christmas when God became REAL in my life.
