    I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

    {This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


    'Twas the night before Jesus came
    and all through the house
    Not a creature was praying,
    Not one in the house.
    Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
    In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

    The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
    Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
    And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
    Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

    When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
    I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
    With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
    I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

    The light of His face made me cover my head
    It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
    And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
    I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

    In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
    Was written the name of every saved man.
    He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
    When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

    The people whose names had been written with love
    He gathered to take to His Father above.
    With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
    While all the rest were left standing around.

    I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
    I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
    I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
    Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

    In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
    The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
    There's only one life and when comes the last call
    We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


    (by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

    To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

    Thanks for reading my blog about Letting Your Voice Be Heard - Together We Can Make A Difference.

    Please pass the word about my blog to other team members, and your Spark friends, and let's see if we can make the differences we all want here on SP. We may only be one, but together we're stronger! I really need your help in spreading the word as it's too big a job for one person to do.

    Also, make sure you go to the link and leave a message on the site forum where it will be seen and noted.

    JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

    His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

    His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

    His day of victory makes all our days complete!

    Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


    For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


    There will never be another act of love
    so pure or triumph
    so celebrated
    as the humility of the cross
    & the miracle of the empty tomb.

    Bonnie Jensen

    Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
