The Gift Giver #Christmas #giving #generosity #children

 

Generous the soul that gives

what little he possess

in such a manner shed a light

gave life’s gift away

***

~Some stories are easier to tell in prose~

There was a boy neither old nor young he had two little sisters.

He wasn’t strong nor was he weak but always a protector.

There came a season barren, cold his family had but little

warmth  they always had, the holidays were special .

I’d known this boy about  a year

a leader one day it was clear.

His challenges were plenty

disability one of many

bad was the year and business worse

 our family agreed these children had worth.

Mine gathered from under the tree

they’d learned kindness and generosity

we took these gifts that Christmas Eve

Six children danced with joy and glee

That little boy looked to my son

 eyes full of glimmers and fun

 what he loved most with to play

 A big heart he gave this thing away.

I remember Leon at this season

knowing his struggles had a reason

 

And with Leon, we celebrate the greatest gift giver of all times…

” For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 9:6

 

Wishing a Merry Christmas to Family and Friends near and far!!!!

You can’t escape

once you’ve been ensnared

now you are replicating the weaver

your words drip with lies

you sneer at your disguise

slicing the truth into ribbon

circling your prey fixing your eyes

hoping to snatch another innocent of your ways

you care little for the heart that beats

as long as you have your say

little do you see the clay like mire

that is opening to swallow you

caught in you own deceit

you who have wandered astray

you will fall to the pit

of your own evil plans

fool, your world is dull

it leads to death

The image drawn in the Bible of the deceiver is one who schemes to trip and mislead the young, innocent and the naive. This web may glisten with a momentary beauty but it lays a trap that few escape. Follow the truth rather than lies and follow the light of day!!!

day light's burning

“He who speaks truth tells what is right, But a false witness, deceit.” ~Proverbs 12:17

 

 “They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs. Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them.” ~Isaiah 59:5
 “For the one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.”
~1 Peter 3:10

“They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.” ~Titus 1:16
