December! – Just your name it seems
Shivers with cold and wintry scenes:
Log fires, hot crumpets, fireside glow,
Frostry panes and men of snow,
Children sledging, snowball fights,
Baubles, tinsel, Christmas lights,
Shopping – mounds of – to be done
In Mall, or perhaps on Amazon?
Excited queuing winds through stores
To catch a glimpse of Santa Claus.
Life just so busy – as t’was then
In distant far off Bethlehem.
Men occupied with taking, giving,
Buying, selling, working, living,
Bustling, rushing – Stand now, see,
‘Midst frantic fast activity,
That God, in Christ, has come to earth
In humble, quiet, baby-birth.
For you, on a December day
The Saviour, in a manger, lay.
Glory to God who sent His Son
And made this month a glorious one!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
