Twas the Night Before Christmas 2012

‘Twas the week before Christmas and everyone’s heart

Was broken and sad for families torn apart.

Questions without answers, for who could have guessed

That grief stricken parents would soon lay their children to rest.

Presents unwrapped still sit by the tree,

Never to be opened, Lord how can this be?

Christmas it seems won’t come this year,

How can one recapture the Holiday cheer?

As I pondered these things, the Lord spoke to my spirit,

Christmas is still coming…don’t you hear it?

The children have passed but they are still living,

They’re with Me now and there’s plenty of giving!

I know what they want and just what they need,

They’ll get the best gifts they’ve ever received!

They’ll have blessings and grace and unspeakable joy,

I got something grand for every girl and boy!

So rest easy My son and don’t worry tonight,

The children are with Me, everything will be all right.”

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
