"It Came Upon A Midnight Clear"

 In The Stable 
She lived near the inn,
 where her job was waiting tables,
Walking home that night,
 she saw something happening in the stable.
 First there was the bright light
reaching down from the sky.
 It seemed to be right over the stable,
 so naturally she wondered why.
Looking through the door
she could hardly believe her eyes
...shepherds are kneeling before the manger
in which a tiny Baby lies.
Moving a little closer
to learn why a Babe was in that place,
she could then see a young woman
with the most serene look on her face.
Curiosity caused her to ask,
Why is the Babe lying in the hay?
They quickly answered, With no room in the inn,
Jesus, the Messiah, was born here today!
Being so astounded
she could hardly take in their words,
til she was told the prophet
described this birthplace for the Lord.
She went away rejoicing,
re-telling every time she was able
the Good News that the Messiah was born,
and could be found in the stable.

NOTE: Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 8th

I will feature The 12 Days Of Christmas

with Precious Moments graphics.

Every person has been given
the gift of a unique self,
and purpose of life is to share the very best
of that gift with the world.

When love and skill work together,
expect a masterpiece.

The brook would lose its song
if the rocks were removed.

The value of a life is best measured
not by the years spent accumulating possessions,
but by the moments spent giving of one's self -
sharing wisdom,
inspiring hope,
wiping tears and touching hearts...

fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you

shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of

life -- in order that I may boast on the day of Christ

that I did not run or labor for nothing.

Philippians 2:14-16
