True Christmas

On Christmas eve it was so cold
Like it was all those years before
As a couple tried to find a room
But they're only offered a stable floor

Amongst the hay and ox and ass
The saviour of the world was born
Laid in a manger warm and safe
Watched over by Mary, `til the morn

There were shephards in the field
All guarding their flock by night
When a heavenly host appeared
Telling them of the child, with delight

Leaving to visit the baby
Travelling to the little stable
Baring gifts for baby Jesus
Showing him love, as they were able

Mary takes this all to her heart
God has told her, he was precious
So as we gather altogether
Let`s remember that first Christmas

In this day and age, Christmas seems to be about presents, food, decorations and cards, but that was not how it use to be.  Maybe it`s time to remember the true meaning of Christmas and the birth of baby Jesus.

Merry Christmas to you all !!
