Hello, my Friend!  Hello today!

I hope you are in a good way!

Mo matter rain, sleet, snow, or shine,

I always hope your day is fine!

When Patrick first came to our land,

His life was just so far from grand.

He was a captive who took care

Of sheep in fields…he knew not where.

2105a

The land was strange, and not his home;

He had not made this choice to roam.

A shepherd’s what he did become.

He was not that, where he’d come from.

But in that time he prayed and prayed,

Then he left…but, came back…and stayed!

183

To Irish folks, he gave his life…

Through days of blessing and of strife.

About the Babe, he taught us all…

No matter whether tall…or small.

He taught of Bethlehem’s manger…

He taught of Jesus in danger…

844a

One of those stories happened when

Three Kings learned of this King of men.

148-6-0103161406-1

They came to find a newborn king…

Same Babe for whom the angels sing!

146-1224151719a-a

From in the East, wherefrom they came,

They saw a Star…knew not Babe’s Name.

148-23-0104161541-1

Its brilliant, bright, splendor-ful light…

It, radiant, made the sky of night!

‘Twas a GREAT Star?  Why would that be?

Let’s follow…said the wise men three!

Such a GREAT Star could mean a king

That the GREAT Star was announcing!

 146-1231150838post 81

Now these wise men…each one a king…

They all came to believe one thing…

A King’s been born…they came to see…

Came to Jerusalem…the three.

148-0107160856-1-82

They asked where was this newborn king…

They had some gifts, to Him, to bring.

1345c

St. Pat told us, those kings did ask,

Where they could find Him… no small task.

From foreign lands, they did not know,

Where a new king’s small face would show.

Judea’s king, Herod by name…

He did not like this new king’s fame.

He asked the kings to tell him when

They found this newborn king of men.

He told the kings he’d liked to bring

His own respect to this new king.

So, off they went…they’re called Magi,

Of course, you might just wonder why.

St. Pat said they just understood,

Some things that not everyone would.

They found their way to Bethlehem.

They watched the star and it led them,

143-Post 81-1224151547-a

0106160943

To Baby Jesus in His bed…

The manger where He lay His Head.

148-24-104161543-1-2-1

Joseph and Mary were there, too…

A great King He was… this they knew.

148-17-0104160931a_HDR

They gave their gifts of myrrh and gold,

And frankincense…treasures of old.

They bowed before Jesus, The King!

Then those three kings did dream something…

They dreamed, to Herod, not to tell,

For Jesus, this would not be well.

So to their home, they did return…

Careful that Herod would not learn.

146-1231150839a-a

They helped keep Jesus safe that day,

This is what St. Pat had to say!

2035

We loved to hear about these things…

Stories like about those three kings!

148-5-0103161404-1

But now I’m off again to dance!

I do not want to miss one chance

To celebrate this Christmas fun

Which very soon will all be done!

1229151057a

And then next year we’ll start again

The Christmas decoratin’ when

It’s time to celebrate once more…

For all…no matter rich or poor,

The Birthday of God’s only Son,

Who came to Earth for everyone!

I am so glad we talked today!

God bless you is what I do say!

Note from Nannie:

The Scripture from Matthew 2:1-12 (New American Bible) was the Source that guided these rhymes!

God bless you and thank you for stopping by to visit Finney and me!

    1. Hello to my dear Friend S from your dear Friend Finney!

      Omgosh! Christmastime has passed!
      My, my…it just went by so fast!
      I have to say my Christmas tree…
      It is just so very lovely!
      I think I’ll leave it up awhile,
      Because it always brings a smile,
      From anyone who might walk by…
      And we all know the reason why!
      Christmas is such a holy time.
      The reason for it is sublime.
      Our God of Love came down to Earth
      To save us all through Jesus’ Birth.
      The shepherds heard the Angels’ sing!
      Their songs proclaimed our newborn King!
      No wonder we all love it so…
      God’s Love for us it sure does show!
      I thank you for your note to me!
      I thank you so very kindly!
      I am so glad we talked today!
      God bless you is what I do say!
