I dreamed that I was present
On that first Christmas Eve,
When Heaven touched the earth
To change all hearts that dared believe.
I watched in awe-struck wonder
As Bible events took place...
The crowded inn, the rapturous look
Etched on The Virgin's face.
A hush fell on the stable
On this holy, holy night.
Through the cracked roof streamed a halo
Of a soft, cascading light.
In the air rose a cresendo
Of anglelic voices sweet
To celebrate the moment
When Mercy and Grace would meet.
Anticipation mounted as the
Hour of midnight passed!
I wondered what the time was
As expectancy amassed.
"The moment of Redemption,"
Came the answer loud and clear.
"Lift up your heart to thank Him,
For the Purchaser is here!"
I trembled as the Child came forth...
As the King of Kings was born!
As love reached out to touch my soul
On that first Christmas morn!
In joyfullness and reverence
I bowed down...but still don't know...
Was it a dream...or have I been
To a Christmas long ago??

Wishing you all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
And let's all keep Christ in Christmas!
"For God so loved the world that He GAVE
His only begotten Son..."
"Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Emmanuel,
which being interpreted is, God with us."
