The Invitation

Hi All I got this in the email today & wanted to pass it on on for your consideration during this holiday season…
 —– Original Message —–

Giving us a little perspective this holiday season:

As you well know, we are getting closer to my birthday. Every year
is a celebration in my honor and I think that this year the celebration
will be repeated.

During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there are
radio announcements, TV commercials, and in every part of the world
everyone is talking that my birthday is getting closer and closer.

It is really very nice to know, that at least once a year, some people
think of me.

As you know, the celebration of my birthday began many years ago.  At
first people seemed to understand and be thankful of all that I did
for them, but in these times, no one seems to know the reason for the

Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun, but they don’t
know the meaning of the celebration. I remember that last year there
a great feast in my honor. The dinner table was full of delicious
pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations  were
exquisite and there were many, many beautifully wrapped gifts.

But, do you want to know something? I wasn’t invited.

I was the guest of honor and they didn’t remember to send me an
invitation.  The party was for me, but when that great day came, I was
left outside, they closed the door in my face .. and I wanted to be
them and share their table.

In truth, that didn’t surprise me because in the last few years all
their doors to me.  Since I wasn’t invited, I decided to enter  the
without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner.

They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling
and laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.

To top it all, this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white
beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho!  He seemed drunk. He sat on
sofa and all the children ran to him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa
as if the party were in his honor!

At midnight all the people began to hug each other; I extended my arms
waiting for someone to hug me and do you know – no one hugged me.

Suddenly they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one
great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if ,
there was one for me. How would you feel if on your birthday everybody
shared gifts and you did not get one?

I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly left.

Every year it gets worse. People only remember the gifts, the parties,
to eat and drink; and nobody remembers me.

I would like this Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life.

I would like that you recognize the fact that almost two thousand years
ago I came to this world to give my life for you, on the cross, to save
you.  Today, I only want that you believe this with all your heart.

I want to share something with you. As many didn’t invite me to their
party, I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party that no one
ever imagined, a spectacular party. I’m still making the final

Today I am sending out many invitations and there is an invitation for

I want to know if you wish to attend and I will make a reservation for
you and write your name with golden letters, in my great guest book.

Only those on the guest list will be invited to the party.

Those who don’t answer the invitation will be left outside. Be
because when all is ready you will be part of my great party.

See you soon.

I Love you!
