Amber Alert … for the Christ Child

Posted on December 23, 2013

The following words were penned by a family friend, Greg Asimakoupoulos. How true! Let us find the Christ Child this year.



In this season of red and green,

an Amber Alert has been issued.

A child is missing!


He's been removed from his rightful place

and kidnapped by a culture that considers him

politically incorrect.


Sadly, not many are searching for him

amid the madness at the mall.

His absence is not on the radar of most.

Shoppers are in search of gifts.

Merchants are seeking shoppers.


Children are looking for Santa.

Public school teachers are trying to find

holiday legends and songs that celebrate a season

neutered of its essence.

Meanwhile, their principals are focused on

uncovering Christmas decorations

that (ironically) should never be allowed out of the closet.


Atheists are on the lookout

for Christmas trees at city hall and creches at the courthouse.

I'm actually hoping they find one

for then they will find evidence

that will point to the missing child.


Yes, that baby in the cradle...

that infant in the straw...

that one helpless newborn

worshipped by three kings

is the one who has been taken

and held hostage

and left for dead

by the blind who cannot see

he offers life!
