A mother was taking down the Christmas decorations including the tree, lights, and the nativity. She couldn't find baby Jesus anywhere.
Finally, she asked her little four year old if he had seen the baby Jesus.
"Yes," he said.
"Where is He," the mother asked.
"I won't tell you. He doesn't want anyone to know where He is," the little guy continued.
"Why," the mother asked.
The little boy said, "Because He doesn't want to be put away with all the decorations."
Now there is a parable there. Let the joy of Christmas continue. Don't put Jesus up with the decorations. Keep the Christ of Christmas alive in your heart all through the year.
