An Upside Down Christmas

Only God could imagine anything so upside down as Christmas.

The Creator of the universe became an infant entrusted to the care of unwed

parents.

Born in cowshed, the only birth announcement to illiterate shepherds.

Lived his entire life in obscure poverty, challenged the learned, convicted

the wealthy, preached to the ignorant, condemned the proud, and died for all.

Because of His coming, going and coming again, life can be right side up…

Christmas-----what a great idea!!

Composed by Linda Waltermire’s niece, Linda!
