Being the christmas season I thought it appropriate to post some poems that I have about this wonderful season of thankgiving for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

To start off here is a poem by a lady called Lucille Jensen, called “Why The Nativity?”

 

 

Why The Nativity?

Why a babe

swaddled,

warmed,

held to Mary’s heart,

born to men through

Deity?

Why a Star,

And kings afar

Kneeling, feeling?

Why a stable,

and shepards able

Worshipping in fields

Of angels?

Why a life

So pure

be taken,

Shaken in Gethsemane,

Then struck upon

A violent cross?

Why?

For me

For me!

Lucille Jensen

Next I have what I call a Christmas Letter, it was given to my wife by a friend.  And i think it is just right for the season.

A Christmas Letter

If you look for me at christmas

you won’t need a special star

I’m no longer just in Bethlehem

I’m right there where you are

You may not be aware of me amid the celebrations

You’ll have to look beyond the stores and all the decorations

But if you take a moment from your

list of things to do and listen to

Your heart you’ll find I’m waiting there for you.

Your the one I want to be with,

Your the reason that I came and you’ll

find me in the stillness as I’m

whispering your name.

Love  Jesus

I hope that these poems help you to remember why we celebrate christmas.  So I wish you all the best for this christmas season.  And hope that you and your families have a great christmas together.  Always remember the reason for this holiday season.

So I bid you adiu, till the next time.

Quotes of The Day

Yesterday my wife and I attended our Church’s Stake Conference. This is meeting where we get to listen to and receive instruction from local leaders as well as Leaders from Church Headquarters.  Presiding at our meeting was Elders Daniel G Hamilton, a member of 8th Quorum of the Seventy.  The members of this quorum serve in the Asia Pacific region.  Anyway during his talk he made some statements that made an impression on me.

The first refers to getting answers from prayer and how to treat it. It is a very simple statement but has profound implications.

 

“I asked God, and He answered; That settles it.”

Elder Daniel G Hamilton

To me this has at least 3 parts to it.  First is asking God for answers, next is listening to the answer or answers given. And finally believing and accepting and following the directions and the answers given. This statement really stood out to me.  As I said at the beginning a very simple statement with profound implications.

The second statement made by Elder Hamilton that had an impact on me he introduced by saying; Someone once said –

“Jesus wants to guide your footsteps, but you have to move your feet!”

The way I look at this statement is that God is ever ready to help and guide you.  But you have to make the effort both to ask for that help, and to do something about it once you receive the answers or guidance he gives to you. he is not going to do everything for you, but he will help you to help yourself.

Well once again we come to the end of my quote post, and so I bid you adieu, till the next time.
