I think of Your tiny body asleep on a mound of hay –

Your tiny, dimpled hands reaching up to your mother’s breast –

Your soft, fuzzy head nestling closer to her.

How did you sleep on that first night of your birth?

You were helpless – in a room surrounded by animals –

Gazed upon with admiration by a group of shepherds and angels.

You were hungry – tired from the birthing experience – Your little body swaddled in strips of cloth to keep you warm.

Your eyes opened and closed.  You had ten fingers and toes.  You were like any newborn – a little ruddy – wrinkled – soft and new.

There is nothing like the birth of a child.  What a perfect way for you to come to us.

Full of life and promise – untouched – perfect in every way.

You came into an imperfect world – struggled through a life of poverty.

In every way You were a baby like others, but unlike others You were perfect.  You are the true Son of God.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
