Getting Back To The Stable At Christmas

Poem By Mac Wilkey

The rancher rode his horse one night, the snow piled on the trail
He’d traveled far to get back home, but feared that he might fail
But when the stars shone brightly; he knew he wouldn’t stray
The wise men must have looked above and followed that same way.

He wondered if young Joseph felt the way that he did now
He heard the sound of animals, some sheep perhaps a cow
He saw the barn just up ahead; the open door, the hay
Young Mary must have looked ahead and seen it that same way.

He tied his horse inside the barn but tiredness settled in
He lay down by the manger and couldn’t help but grin
He looked up at the animals and thought back to the day
The Christ child must have looked around and seen them that same way.

His family heard the noise and all came rushing to his side
They gathered round and then they laughed as little Johnny cried
“My Daddy’s home! My Daddy’s home! “That’s all the boy could say.
The Shepherds with adoring eyes saw Jesus that same way.

To all the singing birds;
I saw no choir director
And heard no human words.

God Knows Who Anonymous Is

God knows who anonymous is
He knows why storms hit or miss
He governs all of nature's laws
For each effect, He is the cause

He's The God Of Tommorrow As Well As Today

Have you ever just wondered what God has in store
When He’s saying, “Be patient—just one battle more? ”
Does He know all the burdens that you have to bear?
Does He know that you’re hurting; does He hear every prayer?

A Whirling Wind Uplifts A Leaf

A whirling wind uplifts a leaf
Brings childish laughter midst my grief

There’s also room for Lana’s glee.

A Preacher Came Up From Georgia

A preacher came up from Georgia-he was looking for some souls to win
He was in a bind; he was way behind-he was willing to buck the trend.
He first went up to Smyrna, a church out in Tennessee
And the preacher said to a church ‘bout dead, “Folks, listen to me.”
