    I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

    {This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }

    'Twas the night before Jesus came
    and all through the house
    Not a creature was praying,
    Not one in the house.
    Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
    In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

    The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
    Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
    And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
    Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

    When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
    I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear
    But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
    With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
    I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

    The light of His face made me cover my head
    It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
    And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
    I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

    In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
    Was written the name of every saved man.
    He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
    When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

    The people whose names had been written with love
    He gathered to take to His Father above.
    With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
    While all the rest were left standing around.

    I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
    I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
    I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
    Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

    In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
    The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
    There's only one life and when comes the last call
    We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

    (by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

    To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

    Thank you so much for the concern and caring. I am so sorry for not posting sooner. I haven't been feeling all that well. Plus I have been trying to get some things done that need to be done. I guess time has slipped away from me. I am going to try and come on today and post.

    I hope that all is well with you.

    Best wishes to you.

    Love Dot

    Thanks for the add...I've added you back.

    I must have missed where you stoppped by...was it a blog of mine that you saw, or do we have friends in common?

    I see you have a goal to lower your blood pressure....I am fortunate to have managed to be 70+ pounds overweight and not have high blood pressure, but my DH has had it for years. He lost weight along with me in 2013 and I'm proud to say he's now off BP meds and off his cholesterol meds. His Dr was amazed. Anyway, it CAN be done and you CAN do it!

    Have a great 2014!

    Like you, I have HBP and have been on meds for a few years now, but I'm really determined to get myself healthy once and for all, since I was just diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes a few weeks ago.

    We can do this journey together, and support and encourage each other! That's what SP is all about!

    Happy New Year!
