The Night Before Jesus' Birth

Post by Hope » Mon Dec 23, 2013 2:36 pm

It was the night before Jesus’ birth with more traveling ahead,
While so many others were sleeping comfortably in their beds.
The Sheppard’s were wide awake watching over their sheep.
They were use to being up all night with out any sleep.
The wise men were traveling from lands far away,
They knew something great was going to happen that very next day.
Mary was so tired and Joseph traveled on,
They knew their Savior was coming and it wouldn’t be long.
Up ahead they saw lights and knew this was the place,
Finally they could rest as they thanked God for His grace.
But what to their surprise there was no room at the Inn,
This surly couldn’t be happening for this was where God had led them.
Suddenly they heard the Inn keeper say in a very kind voice,
You can stay in the stable this was their only choice.
Humbly and grateful to the stable they went,
Filled with straw and animals this was truly God sent.
Mary laid down while Joseph worked all night,
Making a manger for baby Jesus it had to be done just right.
Morning had come and Mary gave birth,
Lying in a manager was baby Jesus that God sent to this earth.
The star was shining brightly letting everyone know,
This is the one you will follow wherever He goes.
Never ever will He leave you or be out of sight,
What a blessing God gave us to make everything right.
Our sins He will take on and show us the way,
To be happy and live our lives for God everyday.

Hello Eva, This is wonderful! What a joy to read! I really love it! I can't wait to share this with the kids. You wrote so one could put themselves there and see all that was going on. That is a gift. One could copy this and put it in their Christmas cards that they send out each year so many others could also be blessed. Have a very blessed Christmas and thank you for sharing this. I shall do the same. Love, Sharlee
