With the Rhythm of “The Night Before Christmas”
Twas the night before Christmas, and the air was so cold; a child was to come a Savior untold…
The Journey was long and in silence, they walked, in hopes that soon they would find rest, which they sought.
And Joseph was there to comfort the way, in hopes to find shelter without much delay.
The Shepherd’s were tending the sheep in the fields, while innkeepers were busy giving drinks and meals.
When in every town there was laughter and joy, Joseph was seeking a place for this boy. In one inn and another no room to be found, Joseph’s heart was heavy and sorely bound.
The inns were all full and doors were shut tight, they had no idea what the night would bring, when Shepherds sat quietly among the sheep, their sounds not heard not even a beep.
With the moon in the sky and the darkness abound, they knew somewhere there would be a great sound, for all the years they heard music and song, but tonight it would be a silent night sung.
As the night lingered on and no room had been found, a woman said come, a manger I found. It is in a stable, there are animals too, but your wife and your son will be warm so will you….
Joseph was grateful, and Mary spoke not, she smiled at the woman while Joseph thanked her a lot.
The straw was dry and the animals clean, their breath was the warmth that the child would need.
They spoke not a word but settled in for the night and soon a star rose in the sky this night. It was brighter than all and no one knew why, but the star was a sign that a child had been born, while three wise men brought gifts from their journey so long.
They came one by one bearing gifts for this child, the angel announced that a child had been born, that a Savior, a King on this glorious morn.
And Joseph and Mary looking up with a smile, knew in their hearts there would be peace for a while, and as the night passed on and the start shone bright, many would know this was a Holy Night…
Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good night.
