Christmas On The Farm

Six girls and me,
and a bucket of feed,
went for a walk over the hill.
I’d been in prayer
before all were there.

I asked God for different,
for a way that was new,
for His help that day,
in some special way,
to give another look at Truth.

All I knew was to take them
for a short little walk.
I trusted the Holy Spirit for
the actions and opportunity
I knew He’d provide the talk.

First we fed the cattle
then continued along our way.
We pretended some were pregnant
as we followed the path
to the barn with the hay.

At the top of the hill,
many buildings were in sight,
we paused just a moment,
spoke of the crowds,
and no room for the night.

The girls were all scarred
when we came to the barn,
like the shepherds in the fields
when the angel
said there’d be no harm.

We stepped inside,
placed our hands on the hay,
we talked of the manger,
and how our Creator
came to us that day.

How different it was
from Heavens throne.
How we are blessed
to get to know Him
as Savior of our own.

Then a little one asked,
“Why’d God leave a place in the skies,
to be a baby, carried and cry?”
I fought the tears
as they gathered in my eyes…

That’s how great God’s
love is you see
He came as the Son
The chosen sinless one
to set sinners free….

Because God Loves us
He didn’t want to stay apart
That’s why Jesus came
God knows more than your name…
He lives in your heart.
