My second poem in a series for Christmas Eve service based on the "Gifts of Christmas."

 

 
They just had to be upset
at old Caesar Augustus
as they made that long hard trip
the emperor called justice.
 
They made much preparation
lovingly you would agree
for the promise of new birth,
a descendant of Jesse.
 
They gave this gift to us all
by every preparation
and they shared that self-less love
which spread to every nation.
 
Like them, we can now prepare
to receive this baby boy
and we’ll find on Christmas Day
our lives are filled with great joy.
