The Tall Of Small
~*Marge Tindal*~

No child-like stature too small
to stand so tall
as one from a child
kneeling there
at the manger in thankful prayer

One child giving prayer
for the Babe laying there
born on this night of wonder
Thoughts of what must surely be
the Babe who would be King

The smallest gift of all
born in a manger stall
Turned out to be - without a doubt
the greatest gift of all

One child giving thanks this night
in the name of children everywhere

Marge,
Thank you for a wonderful message. May we all be as innocent as a child and realize THE GIFT.

Melton~
Thank you so much.
This was inspired by a child who was in
my church group as we went caroling.
When we got to a house with a nativity in the yard
she broke away and knelt at the manger
giving thanks for the Baby Jesus.
Of such is the Kingdom Of Heaven.
Glory be His blessings.

...and we are blessed that you shared the story, as well as the message...

Wow this was great!!!



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!

Elizabeth~
And so it is - in the heart of a child.

Karilea~
From one child we are led to remembering another.

DD~
I'm pleased to share it.
Thank you.
