Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Holy Bible: KJV)

He came as a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes.

Lived among us on earth…

God’s gifts to bestow.

 Christmas 

Poem by Bette A. Stevens

The last cookie baked, the final gift wrapped.

Christmas Eve is upon us…

It’s time to relax.

Christmas music is gently reminding us why

Lord Jesus, the Christ Child…

Came down from on high.

He came as a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes.

Lived among us on earth…

God’s gifts to bestow.

Loving God, loving others —Christ bought with his life

He epitomized love…

Not anger or strife.

God’s love is a precious gift we’re to share

With all those we know…

And with folks everywhere.

Wishing you the love, joy and peace found in Jesus—the Christ Child. ~Bette A. Stevens, Maine author

  7. Bette, what a special gift for us all and I delighted in reading your poem and viewing your special slide show video of it…just precious! Last night we went to Lucia at St. Paul’s Cathedral and it was the most wondrous occasion- when all the lights were turned off, the giant cathedral thrown into the darkness and then Lucia slowly arrives with the 100 strong choir, singing, bearing candles….light, love and life! Hugs & love xx
