A poem in celebration of Christmas.... and Christ, who so loved the world....
Passing an old church in the late twilight,
I was drawn to stop by a striking sight.
So brilliant and visible from afar
was a tall tree topped by a blazing star.
Its strong shafts of rays seemed so magnetic
they drew me forward as if prophetic.
What was the message of this bold beacon?
Gazing in awe, I struggled to reckon.
Just seeing this bold enveloping glow
highlighting the path for my steps below,
reminded me vividly of a night
hundreds of years ago when that first light
shone down on a pathway to God's own Son,
revealing to all that He was the One
to lead true believers to salvation
through His perfect love and their redemption.
As I gazed at the apex of that tree,
the Star of Bethlehem I could then see
setting alight the road to renewal
and the Way, the Truth and Life Eternal.
