Peace on Earth

In just 2 more days, it's Christmas! Wow! Where has the time gone?!
I thought I'd post a couple poems that I thought were funny and appropriate for this Christmas! :) Enjoy!

Twas the Night Before Christmas – Jesus Birth Version
By Rock GriffisIt was the night before Christmas and all thru the land

people were traveling to their home land. The Inns were full of travelers you know
And a young couple was searching for someplace to go.
She was heavy with child and found permission to rest
in a small stable, not considered the best. It had a manger and hay, not much more,
Just a few animals and a dirt floor.
In the same country abiding in the field
Shepherds were tending their sheep as they will. The stars up above were shining up high,
One in particular was lighting the sky.
All of a sudden there appeared in the sky
An angel of God with a message from high. The angel announced don’t be afraid I bring you good tidings
For all people today.
A Saviour is born to you this day
Which is Christ the Lord, he had to say.
In the city of David wrapped in old clothes lying in manger is the
sign you should know.
And all of a sudden there was singing in the air
a multitude of angels singing with care.
Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And when they were gone, the shepherds agreed
that they would travel to Bethlehem immediately.
When they arrived they found the sign.
Mary, Joseph and the babe.
He was lying in the manger, just as the angel proclaimed.
They told the parents that they were told
of this Holy child that she now holds.
Mary was thinking of the things that they said
then they returned and bowed their heads
They praised and prayed
and glorified him and for all the things the angel had said
Eight days later when it was time
The small child JESUS was named.
Remember the star that lighted the sky
that special night, the angels came by .
From even that time, from really afar,
there had been three kings following that star.
It had taken much time to follow the star but they
rejoiced with great joy when they saw what they saw.
A mother named Mary with a child that they saw
they fell to the floor and worshiped with awe.
They brought him gifts of Myrrh, frankincense and gold very pricey items I am told.
Over two thousand years have passed since then
When Jesus was a child born not of sin.
He came and he lived and died for us
God almighty really loves us.
He will be back very soon indeed
To gather his bride for a wedding feast.
Christmas will continue forever indeed
So give your gifts in His memory.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night
may you’re life be filled with His joy and His light.

The REAL Night Before Christmas
(By Parents)
Twas the night before Christmas
when all through the house, I searched for the tools
to hand to my spouse. Instructions were studied, and we were inspired, in hopes we could manage "Some Assembly Required."The children were quiet (not asleep) in their beds, while Dad and I faced the evening with dread: a kitchen, two bikes, Barbie's townhouse to boot!
And now, thanks to Grandpa, a train with a toot!We opened the boxes, my heart skipped a beat
let no parts be missing or parts incomplete!Too late for last-minute returns or replacement;
if we can't get it right, it goes straight to the basement!
When what to my worrying eyes should appear
but 50 sheets of directions, concise, but not clear,With each part numbered and every slot named,
so if we failed, only we could be blamed.
More rapid than eagles the parts then fell out,
all over the carpet they were scattered about."Now bolt it! Now twist it! Attach it right there!
Slide on the seats, and staple the stair!
Hammer the shelves, and nail to the stand."
"Honey," said hubby, "you just glued my hand."And then in a twinkling, I knew for a fact
that all the toy dealers had indeed made a pact
to keep parents busy all Christmas Eve night
with "assembly required" till morning's first light.We spoke not a word, but kept bent at our work,
till our eyes, they went blurry; our fingers all hurt.
The coffee went cold and the night, it wore thin
before we attached the last rod and last pin.Then laying the tools away in the chest,
we fell into bed for a well-deserved rest.
But I said to my husband just before I passed out,
"This will be the best Christmas, without any doubt.Tomorrow we'll cheer, let the holiday ring,
and not run to the store for one single thing!
We did it! We did it! The toys are all set
for the perfect, most magical, Christmas, I bet!"Then off to dreamland and sweet repose
I gratefully went, though I suppose
there's something to say for those self-deluded—
I'd forgotten that BATTERIES are never included!
