A star appears

in evening light,

steady and strong.

It guides the seeker of

heavenly mysteries,

prone to accept

deep spiritual blessings

from Christ our Savior.

Through our prayers,

Christ alone, opens our hearts

to receive His grace.

Blessings He showers upon

His people,

holy and true, they remain


to be His witnesses.


The power of Christ

in the Bethlehem stable

remains very clear today.

For we know He grew up,

taught by Mary,

the workings of God.

He labored with Joseph

as carpenter’s apprentice,

not seeking wealth.

For His Kingdom was not

and is not

of this world.

We welcome

The Bethlehem Christ

in our hearts

as a special infant,

destined to

lead us to holiness

and to our true

home in Heaven with Him.

O come let us adore

the Christ Child.


May the Lord bless you this Christmas

                                          and throughout the New Year.

      Kristi Ann,
      I have been spending time tonight on your blog. I am very impressed on your heavy reliance on the scriptures for getting your point across. It is like a Bible study in itself. Thank you for stopping by my blog and following it.
