The Christmas Tree: From a Manger to a Cross

This is not an original writing from me.  Someone shared this little poem with us yesterday, and I wanted to pass it on in the spirit of Christmas:

The Christmas Tree

"From a tree a manger was made,
The First Christmas, in it He laid.

From a tree a Cross was made,
On it, for our sins, the price He paid.
Each year as my tree I adorn,
I give thanks for the day He was born.
Gently I place ornaments of gold,

Knowing my life is His to hold.
Trusting Him to take care of me,
I praise Him as I decorate my tree.

"I Am the Way, the Truth and the Light," said He.
That's why I put lights on my Christmas tree."

(Author unknown)

May the Light of Christ be your reason for the season!

    1. Thank you Terra. I really liked the poem too...interestingly, it was shared with my son at the flea market yesterday! I had not seen that particular poem before and thought it was well worth sharing. Glad you enjoyed it. Have blessed Christmas too!

    1. thank you, Sylvia! I need to find out who the author of that little poem is! It is very special.

  4. Such a sweet poem! I did a little investigating, and it's written by someone named K. Ross (no idea if they are male or female). I've seen several, longer versions of it. I can send it to you, if you'd like that, Pam.

    1. thank you Pam! I appreciate that information. Yes, if you want to send it to me, that would be great. Do you have my email address? Or facebook?
      Have a Blessed Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!
