Pondering Heart . . . Born

Dear Holy Friends,
Some of you are buried in snow right now. We had 6-10 inches predicted and got a flurry or two. But the wind is harsh and cold out there. And my Savior began His life not in a house with a warm, cozy fireplace, but in a stable, a bed of hay, animals accompanying his mother's lullabies. Wow.
In His Grip, Chandra
One night in a barn
    lonely manger, star bright
        baby's birth, mother's heart
            true worship, holy night
Scent of hay, night air
    animals eating, cows mooing
        stable sounds, night not quiet
            in the noise baby cooing
Heaven opened, angels appeared
    royalty in a bed of hay
        wisemen visit, songs of joy
            salvation come to earth that day
Father's love in a baby boy
    creator living among His own
        manger in the shadow of a cross
            born our sin to atone.
~Chandra Lynn Smith~
