Where Are You This Christmas??

Hi Friends,

Well, tomorrow's the big day for baby-having, so I'm posting a thought early this week. Hopefully my next post will have GOOD NEWS. :-)

Meanwhile, here's a poem I wrote for you to think about for this Christmas season. It's one of my favorite writings:

WHERE WAS I?

Where was I
When the King was born?
Was I at the inn,
Too crowded for Him,
With packages, boxes, and bags?

Where was I
When God became man?
Tending sheep far away,
Lest one go astray,
Blind to even the angels?

Where was I
When Christ first wept?
Was I on the road,
Rushing to and fro,
Too busy to notice the star?

Where am I
This Christmastide?
Am I in the stall,
Forsaking all,
To worship the King of kings?

Hi Marlo - I was wondering to myself if your little one had arrived yet so I thought I would check out your blog. I also wanted to let you know that I am keeping you in my prayers these days as I know life is so full for you and being in the last weeks of pregnancy is a challenge. May your new son join us soon and may our Lord fill you with rest that gives you strength for each day. God bless you my friend!
