Angel On A Mission


 

Angel  On A Mission

I'm an angel on a mission from God;
I'm an angel on a mission of love.
I rejoice in the heavenly choir;
Sparkling white my heavenly attire.
I'm practicing for our grand appearance;
Which will be a historical occurrence.
All angels in line- are ready to go;
"Part the clouds! - Go have a glorious show!"
The skies are opening for all to see;
And we spring forth in God's perfect glory.
The clouds are glowing from sky to earth;
As we declare the Saviors holy birth.
Shepherds shield their eyes and quake to the ground;
Rays of light are circling all around.
"Fear not'  we cry, we bring you good tidings;"
In awe we sing upon our golden wings.
We sing, Glory to God in the highest;
The shepherds praise the Lord and feel so blest.
For the Savior was born this holy day;
They gather their sheep and go on their way.
We direct them to the star, radiant ;
And they go to find the new born infant.
Ringing bells and sheep bleating all the way;
They find the Savior on this Christmas day.
If I, an angel, were to speak to you;
With Gods heart of grace , in His love so true.
Of  the Son of God , come to the World;
Would you seek the Savior and make Him Lord?

"Very Special Hours"






"Very Special Hours"
The stars shone down so softly as
You slept upon my breast;
The hay, within the manger, made
a clean, sweet smelling, nest.
The moon beams touched your tiny face.
I sat enthralled, enraptured,
To realize the grace, this night,
Such softness had so captured!
I wanted so to tell the earth
The things I knew were true.
I wanted, too, to hold You close;
Keep all away from You.
We had waited, all expectant, but were
Stunned to see Your precious face!
Then, shepherds came and we wondered
How they found this little place.
I want to make this timeless,
Never go on to tomorrow,
Just hold You close and claim as mine ~
Excluding future sorrow.
For change is quick and I just want
To hold this night forever,
Never come to days apart or
Relationships that sever.
So, holding close, I'll sing my
Baby song to You;
Feel You cuddle close and hear
The special sounds You do ...
The little sighs, the resting breath,
The flutter of Your eyelids;
The faint and tender cooing and
The circle of Your lips.
I said it once, but this is more ~
I'm blest beyond all measure;
A tiny son with beauty rare,
A real and present treasure!
When time is gone and earth has passed,
Melted with men's rages,
This treasured night will still remain ~
Hope for all the ages.

Thank-you precious Son of God, our holy loving Lord;
Thank -you baby Jesus for coming to this world.
Thank-you for the Christmas star that shines up in the sky;
Thank-you for the evergreen, In Christ we'll never die.
 
Thank- you for the Christmas angels singing in the light;
Thank-you for the shepherds that kneel this silent night.

Who come so very far with three precious gifts in hand.
 
Thank-you for your true love upon this joy filled Christmas;
You are the- Emanuel , our God come down to us.
Thank-you for mother Mary and for wise Joseph too;
Thank-you  baby Jesus for all you come to do.

Christmas Eyes



Christmas Eyes

by louis gander
My mama was a loving spouse who did her very best
to keep my father happy and she never did protest -
to what my father said and did to add to her abuse -
and all the things I saw him do. There wasn't an excuse.
My father was a spiteful man who argued quite a lot
and it had hurt my mama so that she became distraught...
I pulled weeds from her garden and I chopped a lot of wood
that heated up our cooking stove. I helped her all I could.
As we prepared for Christmas Day and all that was in store,
enjoyed, I did, those special times with mama even more.
Yes, more than any other month could ever even boast,
December was that special time that we enjoyed the most.

One cold December morning came when father went to find,
a full and perfect Norway Spruce. (I tagged along behind).
The woods were vast. There must have been a million evergreen
which held a billion snowflakes out in sparkling winter scene.
Reflective sunlight shimmered bright which made my eyelids squint
so I looked down and found that all my footsteps made a print -
in snow so fun to walk through as it crushed beneath my feet -
(although at times the drifts caused me to detour or retreat).
That made me pause and catch a glimpse of smoke from fireplace
meandering above our house so wanting to embrace -
a family fraught with nervous fears and silent times 'to boot' -
as father, with his ego big, had muffled mama mute.

But fragrance from the many pine had found my little nose -
and tiny snowflakes glistened while they settled on our clothes -
reminding me that all is well despite my parents quarrels
and I could choose a better life with character and morals -
to live a life, not crooked, as we trekked from place to place -
to find that perfect tree to decorate our living space.
We trampled each direction and at last he gave a sigh.
We finally found that perfect spruce - my father, saw and I.
The night was strangely silent as we sat around our tree
when mom's love and compassion had been proven true to me.
Out through the corner of my eye, I viewed dejected years -
and though she tried to hold them back, I saw her lonely tears.

Throughout that night the light escaped reflecting off the floor,
and whispered prayers to Jesus echoed from beneath her door...
But light no longer flickers from the candles flaming tips
and silenced too are verses that I heard from mama's lips.
I know that father long regrets his former wicked ways -
but through my tears, I won't forget those special Christmas days
with scenes of the Nativity and tree exactly right,
with memories of mama and the truth that came to light.
Yes, this was many years ago that father and I spied -
then cut that perfect Norway Spruce the day before she died.
I heard his weeping through the door - such deep, repentant cries -
but now he sees as mama did... through humble Christmas eyes

The Connecticut Tragedy




 

The Connecticut Tragedy

No words can express the pain of losing a child through violence.
The trauma, the heartbreak, the brokenness and the anger.

To never hear your child's laugh again, to never be able to hug them or comfort them.

To live a lifetime without them would be the most unbearable reality to have to face.

---------

Lord, comfort the victims of the Connecticut tragedy.

Let their hearts know that their children are held in your loving arms.

Protect the children of our country and turn our nations heart back to you.

We know that this life is only a vapor and we will see these dear children again.
Lord, protect our children from the influences of this world that lead to this kind of violence.
Shelter the innocent heart of our children.
------
My church and my family will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Our hearts a sorrowful for all the victims of this horrific crime.

The Star of Christmas Is Shining


  The Star of Christmas Is Shining

The star of Christmas is shining;
It's shining for all to see.
Follow it's  light to the Savior;
Find Him, in faith bow the knee.
He's no longer in a manger;
Nor upon a cruel tree.
Death could not keep Him in a grave;
His love won eternally.
A Christmas wreath hangs from the cross;
A bow on the manger bed.
An evergreen tree is now standing;
Below the star up ahead.
In Jesus we live forever;
Our sins are all washed away.
God gave us a gift from heaven;
That astounding Christmas day.
The star of Christmas is shining;
From pages of love and truth.
The greatest gift ever given;
Was written in blood for you.

A Present Sent With Love

 
 
A Present Sent With Love
 
Jesus was the baby;
Born on Christmas day.
He would one day grow up;
And take our sins away.
 
Jesus was the baby;
Sent from God above.
Heavens Christmas present;
A present sent with love.
 
Jesus was the baby;
Held in Mary's arms.
Laid in a manger bed;
And kept from all harm.
 
Jesus was the baby;
Underneath the star,
Worshipped by shepherds,
And Kings from afar.
 
Jesus was the baby;
Sent from God above.
Heavens Christmas present;
A present sent with love.

Come On Little Children

Come On Little Children


Come on little children, let's praise the name of Jesus;Let's all wish Him a merry Christmas.Sing halleluiah, giving Him all the glory;As we honor the Christmas story.
He came to this earth as a little tiny baby;He was born to the virgin, Mary.She rocked Him and held Him with motherly affection;He would one day bring us redemption.
She rejoiced within her heart , She held Emanuel;This is why we sing, Noel, Noel.For God so love the world that He gave His Son;His only begotten precious Son.
Come on little children, let's praise the name of Jesus;Let's all wish Him a merry Christmas.Sing halleluiah, giving Him all the glory;As we honor the Christmas story.
Shepherds watched the flocks in the quietness of the night;Angels appeared rejoicing in light.Stunning angels and  glorious singing filled the air;Announcing the birth of our Savior.
They gathered the sheep and went to find the promised child;They found Him with Mary meek and mild.They worshiped the new born King there on that Christmas day;
The child that would give His life away.
Mary cuddled the Savior, rejoicing, she kissed His tiny chin.While many still came to worship Him.Wise men traveled from the East, following a bright star;
Seeking the new born King, they came so far.
Joseph stood faithfully by His virgin bride aright;He lived by faith and not by sight.Joseph worshiped the Son He would raise as His own child;When Jesus was born a miracle smiled.
The wise men came baring gifts, myrrh, frankincense and gold ;For they sought the Savior to behold.They honored Him, As King of all kings and Lord of lords;Did they know He would die for the world?
Come on little children, let's praise the name of Jesus;Let's all wish Him a merry Christmas.Sing halleluiah, giving Him all the glory;As we honor the Christmas story.

"The Main Event"

 

 

"The Main Event"


    by Leslie Rummel

It's not about a Christmas tree
Or lights that shimmer so…
It's all about the Main Event
That happened long ago!

It's not about Black Friday
Or the dollars that we save…
It's all about a Baby Boy
The gift to us God gave!

It's not about the presents
That give our spirits a lift…
It's all about the Father
Who sent the perfect gift!!!

It's not about receiving things
With monetary worth…
It's all about an infant
Who brings hope to all the Earth!

It's not about St. Nicholas
Or the good deeds that we do…
It's all about The Promised One
Who came to Earth anew!

It's not about adorning trees
With trinkets on each limb…
It's all about His strong desire
For us to worship Him!

It's not about the carolers
Or the melodies that they sing...
It's all about the One who saves,
Who's Christ the Lord and King!

It's not about long Shopping lines
Or filling up our carts…
It's all about us asking Him
To live within our hearts!

It's not about December
Or "Secret Santa" with a friend…
It's all about the Holy One
Who to Heaven did ascend!

It's not about the credit cards
Or bills that we incur…
It's all about the debt He paid
Our salvation to ensure!

It's not about the parties
Or fancy clothes and shoes…
It's all about an Angel
Who brought to us, Good News!!!

It's not about the snow machines
Or holiday flags unfurled…
It's all about a child who came
To save a troubled world!!!

It's not about vacations
Or the twinkling lights above…
It's all about the Father
And His Agape love!

Nativity Christmas 12-8-12



 

Nativity Christmas 12-8-12

 
Does someone call as snowflakes fall
upon my window sill?
There comes a sleigh. The horses neigh,
in spirit of goodwill.

There's not a breeze. My mind's at ease.
They bid me, "Come" they say.
So I step out. There is no doubt -
that this is Christmas Day.

I hop aboard and ride on toward -
a town that's splashed with sights.
I look ahead at green and red.
I love those Christmas lights.

The air is crisp. I see a wisp -
on front of horses' mane -
that bounce with pep at every step.
The horses do not wane.

---

Hear sleigh bells chime throughout that time
until I got to town -
And hooves had clopped until they stopped
as I arrived downtown.

Nativity... I smiled with glee -
heard carols in the air.
The shepherds spied. The three Magi
saw Jesus sleeping there.

A camel knelt. In joy they dwelt -
in cushioned stable hay -
A scene on earth of virgin birth -
where one man came to pray.

A poor old man, all wrinkled tan,
was kneeling on the ground.
His hair was messed but he was blessed
as snow fell all around.

Some kids walked through, in contrast to -
his humble position.
And then they felled the cane he held,
reckless recognition.

God woos each one who seek His Son -
but they paid no attention.
I heard them joke each time they spoke
within their own dimension.

He reached in vain to get his cane.
His countenance was grim -
then heard him say, "wife passed away."
as I gave it to him.

Through eyelids tight, they drew my sight -
I saw more tears come through.
It touched my heart, tore me apart -
so I knelt down there too.

---

Snowflakes falling, Jesus calling -
calling from above.
Can you live it? Christmas spirit -
wooing all, in love...

Because Our God So Loved The World

 
 



Because Our God So Loved The World
Susan Y Nikitenko
December 6th, 2012
 
Christmas angels all gathered together;
Awaiting the birth of the King.
They warmed up their heavenly voices
To make an appearance to sing.
 
The clouds opened up to a night sky;
The brightness of heaven broke forth.
Angels appeared  in glorious form;
To announce the messiahs birth.
 
They sang to the  shepherds on the hillside;
Who quaked in much fear to the ground.
The angel rejoiced and said, "fear not";
With harmonic, beautiful sound.
 
They sang glory to God in the highest;
Peace and good tidings to earth.
For that starry  night was the fulfillment;
Of our Saviors most holy birth.
 
Tears of Joy filled the eyes of the shepherds;
They sang and rejoiced in the fields.
They gathered their sheep all together;
And followed the star on the hill.
 
They came to the city of David;
They led their dear sheep in the way.
They saw the star shining above;
And they found the Savior that day.
 
In a stable 'neath the glowing star;
They bowed the knee, and bowed their head.
For they found Him Wrapped In Swaddling Clothes;
And lying in a manger bed.
 
Mary and Joseph welcomed them there;
As they praised and worshipped the King.
Then Mary magnified the Lord;
Her heart filled with joy and rejoicing.
 
For unto us was born that Christmas day:
A Savior, which was Christ the Lord.
A Gift of love, God in the flesh;
Because our God so loved the world.

It's Christmas = Christmas Play





It's Christmas

Susan Y Nikitenko
Humorous Christmas Program Skit
Written December 9th, 2010


Song: It's Christmas

Wise Man 1: Hi, I am a wise man. A real wise guy. This big guy here. He's wise too.

Wise Man 2: Hi, We study the stars and we have spotted a very unusual star. We are here to help reenact and narrate.... The very first Christmas. Christmas is all about C-H-R-I-S-T and that spells Christ.

Wise Man 1: We are in the now, telling the story of the then. We have been traveling from the east for a very long time. We have great gifts for the New born King. We want to honor Him with gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Wise Man 2: Now imagine camels, a dark starry night and dirty feet with blisters singing on our long journey. Remember... We will be traveling at least two more years.

Song: Follow the Star

Shepherd: Hi, I am a shepherd. I am out in the field watching the sheep. I am in the now.... telling the story of the then. All us shepherds were out watching sheep when something nearly scared us to death.
Angels appeared from nowhere......Imagine the whole sky lighting up and the sheep running in fear and one of us yelling "what in the world is that?" .....We were shaking like this. SHAKE Then the angels said.......

Angel: Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

All ANGELS SHOUT; Glory to God in the highest, Glory to God in the highest ........

AngelsHi: We are the angels in the now...well you know

Shepherd: We know and you're telling the story of the then.

Angel: That's right how'd you know?

Shepherd: Everybody knows that.

Angel : Oh

Shepherd: Now we are going to go check things out in Bethlehem. Imagine climbing up a big hill and asking directions while we are moving our sheep along. And here we are worshipping the new born King. We found him in a stable.

Song: Away in a Manger

All: Lu 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Joseph: Hi, I'm Joseph

Mary: And I'm Mary and this is baby Jesus -

Angel: And the scripture was fulfilled - In the Then!

Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins.
And we celebrate the birth of our Savior on Christmas day. In the Now!

Song: On Christmas Day

Song: Ring Out The News

Wise Man 2: Remember us, we are the wise men.....We are still traveling in the then, so Imagine sleeping on a sandy bed, and eating interesting food. Imagine long discussions about the stars and very tired legs.

Wise Man1: But we are telling you the story in the now. As we look to the star remember that Jesus is the light of the world. He came into this world and learned and understood our feelings. He suffered and understands human pain. But Jesus never ever sinned. He was perfect yet gave His life so that you could know peace and forgiveness.

Song: Where There's Light There's Hope

Wise Man2: We have gifts of gold, and valuable spices and perfume. Gifts of royalty for the New born King. And as we look to the light we do not fully understand that this King will one day die for the world.

Wise Man 1: Jesus was and is a gift to the world, for He is alone is the way of salvation to all who believe. He gave and He's still giving.

Wise Man2
: And all the wise men and women of this world should give to others and to God, because to love is to give. After all Jesus didn't have to die for us.

Song: To Love is To Give

Wise Man2: Hey, can I ask you a question?

Wise Man: Yea! go ahead.

Wise man 2: Do your feet hurt?

Wise Man 1: No, because I'm living in the Now.

Wise Man 2: Yea, it can be painful living in the past.

Wise Man1: I prefer the Now, cause all my sins are under the blood. I don't like desert travel and I prefer a mattress.

Wise Man 2: You are very wise. Speaking of living in the now. See our Christmas star. Well that star represents the light and Jesus is the light of the world. The Bible speaks of Jesus as a Star in
(2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: ) Now, when a person believes and puts their trust in Jesus. Jesus the light of the world is born in their heart. It's like a personal Christmas...Jesus not only came to die for us, but He came to live in us and He came that we could live.

Wise Man 1: Every Christmas we are reminded of why Jesus came and how much He loves us, but we really can't understand Christmas until Christmas happens in our hearts.
