A Prayer for St. Nicholas Day

while shopping for presents for family and friends,
getting ready to give them more than they need;
while trimming my tree and going to parties,
writing out cards and wrapping up gifts;
while speeding to spend more than I can afford,
on things that will break and soon be forgotten:
keep me mindful, Lord Jesus, of your humble birth
and the claim of the poor on the bounty that's mine...
