That Wonderful Time

That Wonderful Time

That wonderful time of the year again
Is making its presence known
As the world begins lighting up
For the King's descent from His Throne
All the colors a small token of
The presence of God the Son
The world lighting up for Jesus Christ
The earth's most prized possesion

Man's expression of joyfulness
The landscape of scenery
The lights on the homes predominate
As well as the lights on the trees
The heart prepares for gift giving
And the welcoming of loved one's home
Definitely a movement of God
Who loves each and everyone

No other celebration
Gets such attention as this
It's the one of Highest priority
Definitely first on God's list
For the recognition of
The birth of the saving One
Who other can deliver the heart from sin
Than Jesus the Crucified One

There's a Gift still available
It's cost absolutely free
For the price was paid by Jesus Christ
Whose death can make you free
Who can put an adornment into your heart
Believe me it can be arranged
For whomsoever believes on Him
Their lives are forever changed

So make this year an investment
A time of thought for that day
When the Angel's announced the presence of
Jesus...the Life...Truth...the Way
Absorb the truth of His coming
Who came through a lowly birth
To bring deliverance from our sin
The King over all the earth!

So great Salvation is available
This only through Christ the Son
What greater gift could be given than
To be saved by that crucified One
So make this Christmas a benchmark
In a pure recognition of
The gift of God is eternal life
From that Great gift giver of love!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
