Sunday's Little Blessing - Paper and a poem

Hello Friends,

This week I have something a little different for you: a Christmas paper I made and a poem I wrote. I hope you like them.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment. It really blesses me to know that you like my little gifts.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

You probably can't read it until you print it out, so here is what the poem says:



PATIENCE
Teresa Arsenault ©2015

I am Patience, an angel of the God Most High
I rejoiced when he sang life into being
When creation fell I cried
I thought he would breathe life into the dead
With tears flowing, “Patience” was all that he said.

He gave me a song to sing to the hearts of men
Most were so hardened they could not hear
And very few listened back then
One was a shepherd who sang my songs in essence
He gloried for hours in the Most Holy Presence.

The shepherd became king; he ruled and then died
A tender seedling was promised from his root
But generation after generation were denied
Until a great light that burst forth in the sky
Was met one night by a wee baby’s cry.

“Joyful,” the Holy One in exuberance proclaimed,
“It is time,” he said, his eyes twinkling at me
And I knew I had heard my new name
I looked down on a field full of shepherds in fear
Do not be afraid. I bring you good cheer.

For in the city of David, that loved shepherd boy
A miracle is given to bring hope to mankind
The birth of a king which will fill you with joy
Immanuel, Prince of Peace, God is with us
But you will know his name simply as Jesus.
