WHEN SHEA & SHAUN WERE TWO AND THREE
I ASKED SHEA THE QUESTION ~
"WHOSE BIRTHDAY IS CHRISTMAS?"
AND SHE STARTED JUMPING! UP
AND DOWN! THOSE BROWN EYES SHINING! AND
SAYING "OTHERMAMA ~ I KNOW "FOR SURE!"
I SAID ~ with a hug ~
"Oh no, no, no ~ Although ~ He gives a great
HO ~ HO ~ HO!!!
Remember your Sunday School lesson?
The Bible tells about ~ a Baby! ~
He was born on Christmas Day!
a beautiful! wonderful baby boy!
And Mary called Him ~ JESUS!
Bcause ~ He's GOD'S OWN SON!
GOD'S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!
AND HE CAME TO SAVE US!
E V E R Y O N E!!!!!!!
( As I walked away...I heard Shea telling Shaun
~ Whose Birthday Is Christmas? ~ and
He did as she had done!!! ~ saying
And she said what I had said!
And went on telling about the birth of Jesus!." ~ (Of course ~
I'm still "smiling" whenever I remember all this ~
and ~ May their children ~ share this story with
their own children!
FOR THIS IS WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!! )
