Christmas Mouse

“Mouse in the attic;

Shaking at the grate.

Santa in the chimney;

Kids can’t wait.

Jesus in our hearts;

All things right.

Peace on earth;

Oh, Holy night.”

 

“Glory to God in the highest,

And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Luke 2:14 NKJV

 

Merry Christmas from my house to yours.

Calling the Heart

“What season lies ahead in December?

Calling the heart to remember?

Christmas and bells,

Sights and the smells;

All memories of gladness put together.

But centered on You,

I desire the view

Of a “Season” of ponder and praise.

For in life holds

More than silver and gold, and

The story of Love

Of the Babe from above

Bringing

Joy, Peace and Heaven forever!”

“Do not be afraid, for behold,

I bring good tiding of great joy

Which will be to all people.”

Luke 2:10 NKJV

“While all the world rings

“Good Cheer!”

Depression taunts and

Calls me near.dscn6157

 

Jesus knows,

He understands.

This is why He was

Born of man.

He came to earth,

To set you free.

In Him,

Death has lost

Its hold on me.

Christmas Prelude – To Ponder More

dsc_0061webtreebetter

In my house abundance

Of all the “things” we “feel” will make it right,

Would we,

“With loss in heart”,

 Feel the same on Christmas night?

This caused my heart to ponder more.

For those depressed with grief, wax sore.

Can I understand their suffering?

Extend a hand to make a mend?

With nothing more than pen in hand,

I share the Gift of the Son of man.

The following to come are a few poems written in this “season”

Dedicated to those who are grieving and broken hearted.

“The Merry Christmas song draws near.

Many sorrows await with tears.

Broken hearts of love depart.

Disappointments plague the start.

But measure not the day ahead.

Looking past the fear and dread.

Keep thine eyes upon the Bright.

For darkness cannot exist where there is

Light!”

dscn0105web

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying,

“I AM the Light of the world.

He who follows me shall not walk in darkness,

but have the Light of life.” John 8:12 (ESV)

 

“God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5 (ESV)

What I wanted for Christmas

2015-12-25 Christmas

“If you asked me

What I wanted

For Christmas.

I could easily

Tell you of mine.

It doesn’t come

On an UPS truck,

Or ship via

Amazon Prime.

 

No need for a

Plug in or

Charger.

A password

And upload

Won’t do.

The desire of my

Heart for this

Christmas,

(and daily delight

be it told),

Is the joy of

MORE TIME

In Your Scriptures.

Listening to

Your voice in

Your Word.”

Poem by denisebalog

 

“For where your treasure is,

There your heart will be also.”

Matthew 6:21 (ESV)

Immanuel

“Darken cave was

brought to Light

on a hillside’s

rocky flight.

Mary’s donkey

by her side,

heard the first

new baby’s cry.

Shepherd’s flocks

drawing near,

Immanuel

The King is here!”


Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea

in the days of Herod the king,

behold, wise men from the east

came to Jerusalem, saying,

Where is he who has been born

king of the Jews?” Matthew 2:1-2 (ESV

View from Herod’s palace towards Bethlehem, located approximately 5 miles from Jerusalem.
