Nativity Story

Written by me!!
 
Dear Blogging Friends....
May this Christmas season bring you an abundance of joy!! And, if your celebrations are Hanukkah, Solstice, or Kwanzaa instead, then my wish is still valid!! We celebrate Christmas around here, however, I respect that many do not....  
 
An angel came to Mary;
Said you're having a baby!
And she was shocked by his news;
But God's found favor in you.
Joseph had lots of doubts;
Now their plans won't work out;
Then an angel came in his sleep;
This wonderful wife you should keep!
Soon they had to move away;
Since the couple couldn't stay;
They left their old town;
For Bethlehem renown.
Suddenly, a feeling;
Our Baby is coming;
But every room was full;
Except for this stable!
Some poor shepherds watched sheep nearby;
When an angel flew from the skies;
While scaring them badly;
He told of the Baby!
And a host came, announcing;
Glory to God, Newborn King!!

What a beautiful telling of the Christmas story. Sometimes shortest is the best of all.
