Just look at the clouds, they're white with snow.
Tis the season when children's faces glow.
There's a chill in the air,
And cold frost on your nose.
A red fire in the fireplace,
Keeping you cozy and warm.
Everywhere you turn and look,
There are bright ribbons and bows.
And candles in the windows,
Of every neighbor you know.
The Christmas Trees are glowing bright;
Lights of all colors for your delight.
White lights, green lights, and red lights too,
They sparkle, shine and flash for you.
And in everyone’s yard there are bright Christmas decorations;
Snowmen, the Grinch, and Santa Clause; too many to mention.
But the one I love most of all,
Is Jesus in a manger stall.
There also sits, without a peep;
A camel, a cow, a little sheep.
Above the manger, a star shining bright,
Beckoning us all to follow its light;
To come see Jesus, and give Him our hearts.
He is the message Christmas should impart.
So, this Christmas Season, don’t delay;
Give our Lord Jesus all of your praise.
Before you open gifts, freely given;
Take time to thank our Father in heaven.
For Jesus in the stable stall.
God's most precious Gift of all!

4. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in
Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the
house and line of David.
He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him
and was expecting a child.
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and
placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch
over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone
around them, and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of
great joy that will be for all the people.
11. Today in
the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and
lying in a manger."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his
15. When the angels had left them and gone into heaven,
the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing
that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
16. So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and
the baby, who was lying in the manger.
When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been
told them about this child,
and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things
they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been
