The Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the stable
There was no place to rest
 - not even a table.
Mary lay on the hay
And she looked awfully sick
As the baby inside her
He kicked! 
The baby was coming
But there was no crib;
No teddies or bottles,
Not even a bib!
Joseph was worried
And pulling his beard
- a baby from God?
It was good! (it was weird!)
Then over his shoulder
A huge star unfurled:
The Messiah had come,
The Light of the World!
The wise men, they saw it,
And set out to travel,
A new star in the sky,
A new truth to unravel!
The Lord's angels sang out,
In awe shepherds huddled.
And Mary?
And Joseph?
And baby?
 - they cuddled.

Merry Christmas, friends! 
Thanks so much for reading along with me for another year.
God bless you & yours.
