GREATEST GIFT – PART ONE
The Island Traveler’s Challenge, Weekly Image of Life: Children And Their Gifts, is very timely for me as I explore my theme “Visions of the Holidays”. In my post today, I begin to explore the greatest gift of all, which will come in three parts.
THE GREATEST GIFT – PART ONE
‘Twas the night before Christmas, the eve of Christ’s birth;
Many people were resting all over the earth.
The shepherds were watching their sheep in the night,
And what to their wandering eyes should appear
But a beautiful angel, high up in the air.
His face was all shinning; his garments so bright
That the shepherds began to tremble with fright.
But as he came nearer, the words that he said
Soon gave them to know there was nothing to dread;
He told them of peace, with no fear or danger;
For their wonderful gift they would find in a manger.
So leaving their sheep, they went into town
To seek for this gift; they looked all around.
They came to the stable, the covers they lift.
And there in the manger—God’s wonderful gift!
So pure and so holy, so full of God’s love;
They knew it was Jesus, God’s gift from above.
And so as we think of this Savior again,
May our worship this Christmas not be in vain.
Let us love Him and Trust Him; there’s none that’s too small;
May the Lord richly bless you,
Merry Christmas to all!
These are some of the photos I took of the life-size display of the Pittsburgh Creche. Look for more photos in Part Two, “THE THREE WISE MEN.”
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
