'Twas the Write Before Christmas: Day Six


Day Six Prompt:

Starry Night - by Vincent VanGoh

Starry Night
As little hands cradle a baby in hay,
move sheep across the vast, desert carpet

mingle angels with camels
and huddle sheppards and wisemen
'round the brand new babe,

we piece together
very small,
very tiny glimpses
of that very first
starry night
when heaven came down to us

gave us Hope
something to really
write home about,
something to really
go tell on the mountain,
over the hills
and on the living room floor.

  1. Lots of bright musings for choosing a saintly presence here on earth, as all true Christians spread the words of peace and humanity in faces of adversity, which regretably created martyrs, who are now singing heavenly belong in song with Godly throng!

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  2. Oh I love this post! Little people celebrating Jesus' birth...too cute.

  3. I can't wait to get our out! I love to see little hands playing with the nativity and A now tells the story and acts it out. True spirit of the season.

  4. I love the little, chubby fingers learning about our Savior through play. Nothing more precious than that.
