Poem: A Christmas Reflection

Poem: A Christmas Reflection

A poem by Miriam Wagoner.

Earth.

Skies.

Natures.

Wonders.

All creation.

You’re above them all.

Beauties.

Bounties.

Treasures.

Wealth.

You’re above them all.

Times.

Everything made and not made.

Wisdom

and all the ways of the world.

You’re above them all.

Nations.

Kingdoms.

Kings.

Thrones.

Powers.

You’re above them all.

But you came — born in a manger

and died for me.

— A poem submitted by Miriam Wagoner
