A age old story that never grows old! The reason for Christmas often gets lost in all the paper and bow's. Crawl up close and let me tell you the story.......
















Please scroll down, not sure what happened here but it doesn't want to come back up where it belongs! Sorry but I hope you enjoy it anyway!!!!












He grabbed an old book

pages worn and slightly torn


from years of reading


He wiped off the cover


as he called me over


I climbed upon his knee


settling down close


listening intently to


his deep baratone


and the story unfolded


It was a tradition


between Gramps and me


Me sitting on his knee


and he read the  story


of the Christ Child to me


He told me all about Mary


How she had knew no man


How she had concieved


a baby


Jesus was to be his name


Of how they had traveled


and when they found an inn


there was no room


so a manger was where


 he layed his head


A king was born that night


with Angels to hail his coming


a star to light the way


To our Savior


 who's head lay in the hay


and how very proud


Mary must have been


to look upon this face


that was the heavenly son


Wise men came from the East


bearing gifts


paying homage to the


Child that had been sent


he read on about his life


and all he did while here


and went on to tell me


how man treated him out of fear


They took a man


who knew no sin


30 pieces of silver


A follower turned him in


Then hung hisself


ashamed from the sin


They nailed the Lord to a cross


Where he hung as


His life flowed from his veins


They knew that he was gone


but sent guards


to make sure his body remained


Placed in a tomb


a stone to block the way


Yes they had to be sure


that here his body stayed


Three days passed


I sat close listening to the story


it was quite


 as the dark cold night


And when I heard


that he had died


a silent tear dripped down


 from my eyes


Then I heard the most beautiful


part of all


The third morn


He arose


No grave could hold him down


No cross of mortal man


God the Father had the


Master plans


His mission


To save the soul's of Man


Gramps would pick me up


and tuck me in


and say a prayer with me


Always remembering


the Christ Child


and what his sacrifice gave


With his life


Man was saved
