Beautiful Moments of Joy and Peace


Blessed Gift

Posted on December 24, 2013 at 9:10 AM

Beauty and joy were quietly born

Early on that first Christmas morn

While a star shone, clear and bright.

Mercy, kindness, goodness and love

Came down to earth from heaven above,

In a tiny form, filled with light.


The light of that star, touching the earth,

Was a beacon of this miraculous birth

And the beauty that shone from within.

It hovered over this humble place,

Which was transformed by holy grace

For the One born to save us from sin.


A song of joy seemed to fill the air

As a multitude of angels suddenly was there,

Singing and praising God on high,

Proclaiming a love that will never cease,

The birth of the blessed Prince of Peace,

And their praises rang through the sky.


The peace and love this small infant brought

Was what the world so long had sought,

And hearts overflowed with joy.

We too now rejoice as we celebrate

And remember on this most special date

The gift of this blessed little baby boy.
