Congratulations to Anna who has written a beautiful poem about Advent:
I have a gift from God above,
Sent with lots and lots of love.
Wrapped in blankets, laid on hay,
And to Him all of us must pray.
God gave us all this little gift,
In hope that our souls it would lift
Up to heaven, up to Him,
Where our hearts’ love cannot dim.
We need this gift for he’s our saviour,
He saved us from the hard labour
Of carrying with us our hate, our sin,
He gave us love, love within.
God gave us all His mighty Son,
For He’s the saviour, He’s the one.
For this gift we must prepare,
By spreading love into the air,
And using a wreath to count down,
To the day when He’ll give his crown
To Jesus, Lord of all the earth
As we celebrate Christ’s time of birth.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
