Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
hristmas is not about decorations! Oh, really? I wish children could understand that. But a well deserved salute to homes and public places that look like Chrismas "headquarters" with lovely displays of the nativity scene, lights, and intricately woven wreaths. It is indeed a spectacular time of the year and it's amazing the goodness and beauty all around. But above all, let hearts and homes be open to welcome the Saviour of the world…Jesus!
Enjoy the poems in this Christmas Collection; That Night, Thrifty Christmas, Tree Top, and The city of Light.
Doors were shut-
The Inn was full,
Not even a raffia mat to spare!
They were tired, hungry, afraid,
And maybe even confused;
For how could heaven allow it-
Hardship for the unborn Saviour?
That night was tough-
A night of rejection,
A night of questions,
A night of worrying, waiting, and wondering,
But a hopeful night!
The saviour would indeed be born,
Just like every other baby,
But Mary and Joseph knew-
It was not an ordinary night!
Dazzle on a dime?
Make the home look Christmassy!
But oh no, why are Christmassy stuff so pricey pricey!
Oh dear Mary, did you spend a dime on that silent night?
For they stayed at a "thrifty" manger-
A makeshift cot made of straw
Well, they really had no choice!
Baby was wrapped in "maybe" mama's knitted blanket
I wonder if Mary even had a baby bag!
Ever wondered what the Shepherd's wives did?
Maybe a food and clothing drive,
Oh, they must have loved on them!
What a glorious Christmas...
Maybe a "thrifty" Christmas indeed!
with dangling ornaments;
balls, socks, harps, bells, crystals.
The opulent tree points up to heaven-
And when heaven looks down, the star at the top smiles!
If that tree was a life, I wonder what its tree top would look like-
Joy, peace, gentleness, patience; excellent dangling ornaments indeed!
Let them dangle for all to see and feel! Let your light shine!
Let it sparkle
At the tree top,
