His creatures failed to listen to His guidelines to grow
and got lost in their own wills. The rest we know.
So the Maker of his creatures animal and Human, the Generator Himself Creator of billions of stars and galaxies
black holes, planets, moons, suns,
time, space and all material, of everything visible and invisible …
decided in Pure Love to send down His Son, His Mirror
to become one of His Creatures. He, the Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and the End, the second Person of the Blessed Trinity,
God Himself…. Came down to be one of His creatures… His little ones.
He came down and became one of us to lead us, to save us, show us the Way. Christ.
There was a man who did not and would not believe,
who could blame him in a world set to deceive.
One wintry freezing blustery Sunday after his family went to church,
he was watching the birds outside his picture window.
They were freezing to death he could see,
no place to hide and warm themselves in the bare trees.
His bird feeders had toppled in the snow
and his little friends had no where to go.
He quickly went to his entrance door and opened it wide
spread seed and suet in a trail into his house.
“Come inside my little friends he cried!”
I won’t hurt you and you will be safe here with me.
but they didn’t believe him…. Who could blame them
he thought in a world set to deceive….
Then in his anguish for his little friends he thought,
if only I could just for a day become one of them
to fly out there, then they would believe me!
then they would follow me into my house…where it’s warm.
and they would be saved! Poor little ones!
Then he understood….
The next Sunday He filled his birdfeeders
and went to the Christian church with his family.
to give thanks to the Almighty Love.
It was CHRISTMAS day.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !!!
