Contemplate the Greatest Gift of All (written originally 12-22-13)

Once upon a time,
In a city far away.
A baby laid all swaddled,
The only comfort…hay.

In humblest beginnings,
The Savior came to save.
Born of a virgin, Mary,
This was God’s chosen way.

He could have dropped out of Heaven,
He could rule by gavel or sword,
But instead He came as a baby,
This infant is also our Lord.

How gracious our loving Savior,
Who took on our flesh to live. 
For my sin earns a punishment I cannot pay,
But by His blood, He can forgive.

So in this Christmas season,
With every gift you get,
Contemplate the greatest gift of all,
Jesus humble birth and sin-crushing death.

-Joy Lynn

Romans 5:8 “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Have you receive this gift by faith and trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior?  If not, I hope you receive it today.  Merry Christmas y’all!


  1. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! :)

    1. Thank you, Amanda! I didn't go home to Texas this break, but I spent the holiday season taking an in-country mission trip of sorts. It was a blast! Hope all went well for you! I loved that priceless family picture of yours. It certainly made me laugh out loud. Thanks for stopping by!
