O Come Let Us Adore Him
by Sue Towler
Christmas comes but once a year
But what does it mean to you
An enormous meal, course after course
Helped down with a drink or two ?
Waking up on Christmas Day
With anticipation to see
All the oddly shaped parcels
Wondering are there any for me?
Once the meal is over
Sitting to listen to "The Queen"
Then waiting for "The Rellies" to come
Late again!! where have they been ?
Well after all the panic and fuss
The day has almost gone
Do you wonder what it's all about
It wasn't even much fun.
Maybe thar's because the real reason
For celebration has been ignored
The birth of Christ our Saviour
Is he no longer your Lord?
Or is he only someone
You turn to when in need
That doesn't seem quite right though
A one-way friendship indeed
So this year why not make a change
Fix your thoughts on Christ our Lord
Put Him First above all else
To be truly worshipped and adored.
Tonight, I have just come across the following website : christart.com full of cliparts and art stuff obviously. Unexpectedly they also have a number of beautiful poems written by talented brothers and sisters. I couldn't resist sharing this one with you. Praise the Lord.
May the Lord bless you in abundance.
- I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance. I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. I live blissfully with my husband Steven, a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
