Lk 2:1-14 Christmas Poem
Just a little reminder from a sweet little angel:
It was on a cold night like this, a night unlike others,
the first of all miracles was truly born.
It cannot be forgotten that Emperors and Empires ruled throughout the earth.
Death and destruction filled so many with hurt.
Screams from the innocent, of sadness and loss,
were far too common throughout our earth.
Like so many nights before,
it appeared as if hope had gone to fear.
But it was during this night that hope reappeared
and awakened poor Shepherds who were out in the fields.
In the darkness of the sky, a bright star broke the night.
A child had been born, the true lamb had appeared.
The First and the Greatest,
The Last and the Lowliest was born on this day
and gave us true sight.
Emperors awakened with fear.
Empires all trembled in fear.
How right they were, for they would all disappear.
But the Wise of the world looked up and agreed,
this star in the Heavens would point them to their King.
In His Kingdom God chooses the humble to make them strong.
God chooses the poor to inherit it all.
God chooses a village as the City for all.
So we should always remember,
that the greatest of all,
are the tiniest of persons,
born in the remotest of places, and
found among the poorest of races.
Tonight, the Savior of the world is born!
So do not fear a single thing,
you are very much loved by our Savior and King.
