A Second Star Story on Christmas

A Second Star Story from Christmas Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Up above the world so far. Leading wise men to the place A baby came to save his race. But, alas. Men’s greedy hearts That’s where trouble always starts Some have more than I can gather Others may have what I would rather There’s oft a line that’s drawn between The outcome oft so easily seen Someone strikes out. The fight is on No one will stop until they’ve won Until at last, we”turn the cheek” Revenge is what our “neighbors” seek How many millions must fill the graves Because some bullies just can’t behave? Would this prove the only star To bring its comfort down so far? Would there be in years to come We might sort out, yet another one? Could it be a Star of Peace & Rest Would find its way into human’s breast. To offer them a place to turn To contemplate and maybe learn To serve mankind as a shining beacon Some real help that man’s been seekin’ Yes there’s that one that rose above To prove existence of undying love. This same babe we’ve spoken of Was later called out by a dove The great Messiah, God’s own son The Star of Peace, the final one. He would not turn away from death He loved us all with his last breathe That we might live from shore to shore There’d never need be war no more If that is true, what’s said above Why is there war and not real love? Because ‘til all proclaim “Him” King Only strife will mankind bring. Written by oldbuck Dec 3, 2017 as he looks forward to “Peace On Earth” Good Will Toward All Men. SIDE NOTE: Some folks believe, the Star of Peace rests firmly on Matt Dillon’s chest, while others feel Christ forever wears it best.

Story telling at its best Oldbuck i enjoyed this from start to finish. Blessed are they who have Faith and believe that Christ will walk this earth again, bringing with him the peace that we so urgently need. I loved your side note, a little humour thrown in....Maria

Maria: I'm glad you enjoyed the rhyme. I only post about every tenth one since most are written for special occasions for friends as greeting cards. I love Jesus and making people laugh. Sometimes, it would seem, not necessarily in that order. oldbuck

I take it you have seen the movie dogma... This is great story telling as always.. great flow and rhyme... I think many people will think many different things in regards to where the star lies

SO: Thanks for reading my stuff. You are right about many have differing thoughts. I'm committed to "the narrow way". For broad is the way that leads to destruction. I just had to throw that in. :o) I wish you a Warm Winter and a Merry Christmas wherever you are from. Keep sharing your work. We enjoy hearing from you. oldbuck

Indeed, why is there still war? Will peace ever be attained in our lifetime? We must continue believing. Well written.

DM: As long as we believe in Christ, we can have everlasting peace. :o) Thanks for reading my stuff and commenting. It means a lot to know someone may have found a bit of pleasure in our work. Now I'm off to catch a silly "Babbit". (probably heard that before :o) oldbuck
