A Star Is Born

“The Morning Star Has Arisen, With Healing In His Wings”

It is Tuesday morning

just four days away

from Christmas Day

The greatest event on

earth will soon take place

For centuries the world

waiting for His promise

“A Savior shall be born”

“He Calls The Stars By Name”

In heaven, a flurry of

angels preparing for

their flight to earth

Their Beloved Lord

has stepped down from

His throne

The Great Creator

One with His Father

The Holy Spirit

planting a child in a Virgin

girl

“Only In Darkness Can You See The Stars” Martin Luther

Mary heavy with labor

Joseph in search of a place to

rest

Only in a humble stable they

have found

“And She Shall Bring Forth A Son”

A star in the sky

the sound of choirs

praising the birth of a baby boy

The Star of Bethlehem

the Wisemen follow

bearing gifts from the

East

Shepherd’s with their staffs

hurry on, blest with the

message to come and see

entering a stable with oxen

and ass

****

Angels beckoning those on

earth

“When They Saw The Star They Rejoiced”

“Come and rejoice

the Savior has come”

They are perplexed

for no one is willing

to join in praise

Angels hurry on

surely someone will join

them in song

“No Room In The Inn, In A Manger He Is Born”

It is Tuesday night

three nights before Christmas

after a busy day

The rush of guests have come

and gone, gifts are ready

with ribbons and bows

The kitchen aroma with

gingerbread and spice

****

“The True Light Which Lights The World”

Hastening at the midnight hour

the angels knock on the door

“We are searching for one who

will give us bread

An answer is heard

“Do not trouble me

The door is now shut and my

children are with me in bed”

“It is too late, the bread

in the oven not yet baked

come back at the breaking

of dawn”

“The day has been long with

joy and laughter and too much

to drink”

Then turning his face, into slumber

“Do Not Trouble Me, The Door Is Now Shut”

once more, he falls asleep

While the angels weep!

Once again with a persistent knock

“He Is The Bread Of Life”

“Please give us bread that

we may eat”

And because of their persistence he

arises, gathering a few crumbs

stumbling to the door

promising a loaf with the

rising of the sun**

Why are we content

with our worldly gifts

when a special Gift is

wrapped in swaddling

clothes for us?

The kitchen with the scent

of sugar and spice?

“The Gifts Are All Wrapped”

When wise men

bring gifts of frankincense

and myrrh?

Why are we content with crumbs

fallen from the table?

Surely those who persist will eat

of the Bread of Heaven!

“Wrapped In A Swaddling Clothe”

**A parable given by the Lord
while here on earth, inspiring
us to ever be in prayer,
persistent with all of our needs,
for we know not the hour or the
day He will return! Luke 11:5-8


^The biblical parable states
A ‘friend’ requests three
loaves of bread, rather than the
word ‘angels’ which has been
used.
