From Crib to Cross to Crown! Jesus; Plus Another Jan Bracken Poem about Christ; and Ball Brothers: It's About The Cross


~~~May your walk 
with God become ever Closer each year!~~~
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in
in 2020! 

From Crib to Cross to Crown

He was laid in a crib small, 
Knowing full well what lay ahead.
When hungry he would bawl,
In a manger full of straw for His Head.
Little did the world know that night,
So long ago in that far away land;
They were welcoming an eternal light.
What GOD, THE FATHER had planned.
The cross was a part of the peaceful scene.
Although on most pictures you don't see the cross.
It was something wasn't foreseen
A Crib to a Cross to a Crown is where GOD'S LOVE comes across!!

 The Ball Brothers Sing: It's About The Cross 


When we give a present, what is the reason?
Do we do it to make ourselves feel grand?
Here is something to think about during the holiday season.
Will you be listening for a clapping hand?
Giving a gift is lots of fun.
But does it make us just feel better
Or the receiver think of THE SON!!!
Or the Bible which is God's letter.
After we give of ourselves to OUR SAVIOR forever,
Will our gifts be useable or ornamental?
Or just fun and clever?
As you give this season, make sure your gift is monumental.

Super lovely poetry, Jan. Pieces like yours and other thoughts, stories and so forth about the Lord are what I would like people to contribute to this blog. We each have something to say or to share about God.
THANK YOU for your major contribution. Your encouragement to us is amongst the best of the best because you love God, and you understand and are compassionate to people; you spread the Good News/Gospel of Jesus Christ, realizing its full importance.
Blessings in the New Year,
(Posted by me and then removed because there were some problems in getting Jan's poetry into the blog right; unfortunately, I had to remove her beautiful image that she had combined with "From Crib to Cross to Crown.")

Absolutely, I am ready to join forces :) I have been saying for some time- you have at least 5-10 books in you just waiting to come alive!! Know you have been working toward that endeavor recently. You have shared some of your inspired drawings and explanations of the things of the Word. People will love what you have to say...let's get started, Friend!!! You inspire me.
