HIS BIRTH

                  HIS BIRTH

The stars twinkle in the cold crisp sky -
twinkling to light the way for the grand entrance
Sunset expelling rays creating hues of blue,
rose, grey and fiery red,
Clouds stood far off allowing her splendor
room to excel -
Soon she laid down to rest, pulling her
colorful blanket over her head.
Stars hid, seas stopped their
waves, trees stood erect, birds quieted in
anticipation of His arrival.
Soon the North Star shone brightly
illuminating the heaven – awaiting His arrival.

Creatures on earth knelt in honor – awaiting His arrival.

She cried as the pains of life drew near.
Pains which she would feel throughout His life.
A sigh of relief when upon her thighs she felt
His presence.
Smile of relief for rest was near.

Stars twinkled for all to see.
The King has arrived!
Seas roared in jubilation -
Moon raised high -
Creatures stood over Him
He who would change the lives of mankind
for centuries  – had arrived

I knelt in adoration at the foot of
the cradle - this King born unto thee.
