Words to Bless You! by Amanda (Illinois)
Hi!! I wanted to share something with you that I thought might bless you, and hopefully bring you many smiles. I joined BibleRhymes a few weeks ago and have absolutely LOVED what you and your team have done.
Here is where the smiles come in…My 2 1/2 year old niece was sitting on my lap when I was on the site a week or so ago and we looked through the ‘Zacchaeus’ story. She clapped and got really excited during the story. When we finished it she looked at me and said, “read another one Tia?” That night we went through ALL of the stories that are available. When we went through the ‘Christmas Story’ that was illustrated by you (Ken McCardell), and got to the page where King Herod was she said “he’s angry, right Tia?” I was amazed at how perceptive she was to the illustrations. I was totally blown away.
Now any time I am using the computer she asks for Bible stories….she loves them. You have a little fan here in Illinois. Just thought I would share that with you and thank you again for all that you are doing!!
The Plot: The Christmas Story
With tax-season looming, a young couple had more to think about than most. They were preparing for the birth of baby Jesus—the Savior of the world was coming! The news enraged a jealous, hateful king; he wanted to find where the child would be. Would wise men help him?
The Bible Rhymes: Christmas Samples
- “Then what did God send one fabulous night?
An angel to Mary with news of delight!
A marvelous sight: this gift from the Lord.
The angel told Mary that she was adored.”
- “Right on arrival they looked all around.
Mary and Joseph scoured the town.
But no rooms were found; what would they do?
The inns were full, and houses were too.”
- “Then what did they see? The star from before!
It brightened the pathway to Jesus’ door.
Pouring their hearts out they knelt down to pray
And offered Him gifts, a fancy array:”
Bible Verses: Christmas
The Christmas story can be found in the Bible’s New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke (Matthew 1: 18 – Matthew 2: 12, and Luke 1: 26 – Luke 2: 20).
