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.

      Hey Cristina: That particular Christmas meant so much to you because it really displays the "true meaning of Christmas." Gifts come and go but experiences with God will last forever! Thank you for sharing.

      Be blessed...
