Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were filled by Daddy and Mommy 'cause
In our family they are the real "Santa Claus". =D
The gifts had been bought, wrapped and put under the tree,
And there was one very excited Noah, Sarah, and Kimberly.
But before we open gifts on the 25th, we'll read Luke 2
All about Mary, Joseph, baby JESUS, the shepherds, and wise men too.
And we'll try to put ourselves in Joseph and Mary's place.
Wow! Can you imagine the ridicule that they faced?
"Yea Right, that baby that Mary has is from Heaven above!"
And other such gossip from those whom they loved.
Then imagine Mary's LONG HARD donkey ride
Being GREAT with child...Joseph at her side.
No comfortable bed, warm sheets or pain med.
Just a stinky stable and a manger where animals fed!
Jesus left the splendor of Heaven to come down
To earth to save us that we might someday wear a crown.
Such love and sacrifice deserves ALL OF ME
Here I am, Lord, to go, be, do...to live for THEE!
From Bogota, Colombia to your street and home...
We wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS with this poem.
May this year we all be for Jesus a true light!
And with that I'll bid y'all...a very good night! =)
