"Merry Christmas" from: Country Preacher Ministries, Inc.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Me and Christmas

It’s misting rain with sleet and snow, as I make my  way home.
The night is dark and I feel a coldness in my bones.

Then I think of Him, whose  blessings are untold,
And the beauty of this night, although it’s bitter cold.

I remember that night of long, long ago,
When the angel choir sang to the shepherds below.

Amazed and fearful, they listened with awe,
As their sheep wandered along to the valley below.

"Tis the birth of the Savior,” the announcement was clear.
They must hurry to see him now,  while they were near.

Ragged and dirty, they came with delight,
To see the Christ-child, born Christmas night.

They  were the first to see God’s Son, yes,
How blessed by the Lord, and how glad they had come!

Leaving the manger, crude though it be,
They’ve brought the story of Christmas to me.

Though the night is dark and the day is long,
Burdens are many, and trials do come.

I am a blessed one who has been touched, by
               The “Life” of God’s great love at Christmas time.
