Florida's Foreverly Shores
Does It Ever ?
Does it ever snow in Bethlehem
and did it on that night ?
So if it didn't - then how come
lots of people think that it takes snow
to make a Christmas bright ?
I need only the story of The Babe
laying in a manger bed,
to give me thoughts of the Christmas gift
dancing in my head.
A starry night in Bethlehem,
eons and eons ago,
lit by the warmth of angel's breath
brings to me all the thankfulness
my heart needs to know.
Snowflakes falling or palm trees swaying
can't make a difference you see.
Only the sound of angelic surround
singing that sweet Babe to sleep.
Christmas for me is in knowing,
that in a manger with cattle lowing,
one special gift was placed
our sins to erase
when Baby Jesus smiled.
