Our Family's Christmas Card. . .

The Special Ornament
by Mark E. & Esthermay Bentley-Goossen

‘Tis the season to lavish the tree,
And watch small eyes twinkle
With excitement and glee
As trimmings and lights adorn that lush tree.
Oh what a glorious sight that we see.

A mother beckons father to come very near
To adorn their grand tree with that last special ornament:
The one the family holds dear.

But lest we forget. . .
Another Father had placed on a tree
An ornament of extraordinary beauty and grace.
To make provision for Adam’s fallen race,
And cancel sin’s debt without even a trace.
To redeem unto Himself a Bride so chaste.
That we may each gaze forever at His dear precious face.

That special ornament is the Lamb. . .
Jesus Christ.
