~The Heart Of Christmas~

On a cold winters night with a star shining bright
2000 years ago, the greatest gift of all was born
no ribbons or bows wrapped around swaddling clothes
but a precious baby boy, sent with much joy

Angels were heard singing far and wide
an announcement ringing on every hillside
~Glory To God In The Highest~

Wise men and shepherd's were drawn to the call
they followed the light whispering with delight
surely this must be the night!
As closer they came, they began to exclaim

Our saviour is born!
Forever, the heart of Christmas!

~BR~

A great read. I really liked this!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

BloomingRose:

I like the graphic. The poem is good because, it reminds people what Christmas is really about. Good Job!

Very beautifully done my friend not only in the telling of the story in your wonderful write but in the wonderful way in which you never fail to bring the spirit of happiness and love to your words through "him".  Happy Holidays to you and yours.  Hugs to you.

A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses.
