Twas The Night Jesus Came

[SIZE=2][COLOR=seagreen][B]Twas The Night Jesus Came
[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][COLOR=seagreen][B]Twas' the night Jesus came and all through the house,
Not a person was praying, not one in the house.

The Bible was left on the shelf without care,
for no one thought Jesus would come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
not once ever kneeling or bowing their head.

And Mom in the rocking chair with baby on her lap,
was watching the Late Show as I took a nap.
When out of the east there rose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what's the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutters and lifted the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but Angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.

The light of His face made me cover my head,
it was Jesus returning just like He'd said.
And though I possessed worldly...

Remember My Birthday - A Different Perspective

[B][COLOR=seagreen]HOW TO CELEBRATE CHRIST'S BIRTHDAY[/COLOR][/B]
[B][COLOR=seagreen]-- from Christ[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]Dear children,[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born during this time of the year and that it was some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of pagan festival. Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don't care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My birth just, GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Now, having said that, let Me go on. If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn't allow a scene depicting My birth,...

Remember My Birthday

[B][COLOR=seagreen]This has ALWAYS inspired me very much. As it is getting close to His birthday celebration, I wanted to do this for the Lord. This was written by an anonymous person but is truly beautiful so a little early, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS !!!! [/COLOR][/B]

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=3][COLOR=seagreen][B]Remember My Birthday?[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=3][COLOR=seagreen][B]As you well know, we are getting closer to My birthday. Every year there is a celebration in My honor and I think that this year the celebration will be repeated. During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there are many radio announcements, TV commercials, and in every part of the world everyone is talking that My birthday is getting closer and closer.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[B][FONT=Arial][SIZE=3][COLOR=seagreen]It is really very nice to know, that at least once a year, some people think of Me. As you know, the celebration of My birthday began...

A New Shepherd For Baby Jesus

[B]I thought this was very beautiful. I also posted this in Home and Family on the boards but I wanted to be sure that it might be seen. Animals have the most keen sense about life. Some may say the pup just wanted someplace comfy to lay, I prefer to think it is more than that. [/B]
[B]A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. [/B]

[B]During the night the folks came across this scene. [/B]

[B]An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night. [/B]

[B]We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus' lap from time to time.[/B]

Angels Of MMC

This past Sunday, September 12, was my birthday. I know some of you remember from a previous blog I had written that I was very sad. I really did not have many good expectations for that day. I was thankfully surprised. I logged on to work that morning and on a break decided to check the forums of MMC. WOW. That is all I can say. I went to the Christmas Countdown thread and there Maureen had started a thread called "Happy Birthday Caninemom3". That in and of itself started tears rolling down my cheeks. To think that someone I have never met thought it was important to recognize my birthday was more than I could bear. As I clicked on the thread there were already several birthday wishes for me. Needles to say I was quite weepy in a good way throughout that day. Every time I looked, there were more and more birthday wishes from the members here on MMC. You are all SO AMAZING !!

Because of all of you, my sadness turned into hopefulness. Because of all of you I felt...
