are you ready for Christmas? (repost)

"Ready for Christmas," she said with a sigh As she gave a last touch to the gifts piled high... Then wearily sat for a moment and read 'Til soon, very soon, she was nodding her head.
Then quietly spoke a voice in her dream, "Ready for Christmas, what do you mean?" She woke with a start and a cry of despair. "There's so little time and I've still to prepare. Oh, Father! Forgive me, I see what You mean! Yes, more than the giving of gifts and a tree. It's the heart swept clean that He wanted to see, A heart that is free from bitterness and sin. So be ready for Christmas - and ready for Him. Are you ready for the Lord to come in the clouds? Telling others of Him and His love so they can be ready? Have you GIVEN your heart to Him? Are you ready? Behold, He comes.... Matthew 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. When Jesus comes to reward His servants Whether it be noon or night, Say, will He find you and me still watching With our lamps all trimmed and bright? Oh, can we say we are ready, Sister *_*, Ready for the soul's bright Home? Say, will He find you and me still watching, Waiting.... Waiting when the Lord shall come? The only way to be ready is to be born again and walking in obedience to His Word for His glory!! *_*
