AWAY… FROM ALL HEAVEN’S GLORY

IN A MANGERIMG_5536

Israel is a land of few trees and plentiful rocks. Stables were usually in caves or under rock ledges and the mangers were of stone like the picture of the replica above.  The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem covers an ancient cave stall. The mangers were found wherever animals were kept or fed.

The following poem is one I wrote for my Christmas card this year.

Have a blessed Christmas!

In a Manger

My creator and Lord in a manger,

So I’d no longer be a stranger.

He leashed His infinite power,

From the sacrifice, He didn’t cower.

Because He loves me.

He really loves ME!

The King of Glory

Came to rewrite my story.

He redeemed His creation

Made me part of His holy nation. 

I owe Him my all!

How will I answer His call?
