_______ On Christmas Day _______

On Christmas Day the King of Kings is born
New each year since first appeared the Star.
Children breathlessly await the morn,
Hope for gifts, not knowing that they are
Royally endowed with rich rewards
Internally. because our God above
Sent His Son, the tiny Lord of Lords,
To demonstrate the power of His Love.
Mammon calls, and parents feel they must
Afford material delights that glow
Seductively inflaming vicious Lust 
Denying Mind and Spirit’s need to grow.
A trough not fit for kin that nourished kine
Yields again the King of Love Divine.

~ FreeThinke

  3. On earth has dawned this day of days;
    Let all good people sing its praise.
    Sing Alleluia one and all,
    In every nation, every hall.


    ~ Olde Sheepshead Bay Acolyte's Carol

  4. When so much of the season is spent shopping and engaging in the pagan rituals surrounding Christmas there are those who understand well the real meaning behind the birth and ministry of Christ.

    Merry Christmas Mr. FreeThinke.
