If you look for me at Christmas

by kenval

You won’t need a special star. I’m no longer just in Bethlehem, I’m right where you are. You may not be aware of Me, Amid the celebrations. You’ll have to look beyond the stores, And all the decorations. But if you take a moment, From your list of things to do, And listen to your […]
