If I had a part in the Christmas story,
I would want to be the manger hay
Not a big or splashy job like the angels or the star
Not with fancy formal gifts like wise men from afar
I wouldn't be the shepherds or the camels or the sheep
And not the town of Bethlehem, awake, but sound asleep
Just simple manger hay
Serving Baby Jesus by feeding all His lambs
Learning how to watch the movement of His hands
My only tasks--to rest beneath and lift up God's dear Son
Until the blinded world will see the work that He has done
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Happy Birthday, Jonathan! - Few people in the world enjoy and embrace life as much as our Jonathan. He is a mover and a shaker. Always doing something.....always making something........
