Christmas Story Retold by Looking Back

By Brenda Drake

I see by faith Mary large with child
Assuring Joseph she was all right…trying to smile
Surely she was uncomfortable for she knew the time was here
I can almost hear her sigh as the inn drew near
But no, it was not to be the place Christ would be born
There was no room available with a bed comfortable and warm
In a manger lined with hay
The head of the Son of God would lay
While the world was busy doing their own thing
In a stable was born the Savior King
The Angels could not contain their excitement… their voices sang clear
So loud the shepherds in the field could hear
“The peace on earth” will one day surely be
Because now looking back I know what He did to set us free
He that was born in a manger prepares for me a place as He said
I see by looking back the wonderful future that lies ahead

John 14:3
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
