Hello each, as Christmas is almost here I wish to share another poem with you all…I wrote this poem back in 2007 when I was on WLS but for some reason it didn’t arrive here with my other work. It’s title is ‘The Warmth Of A Beggar’ Wishing each a Happy Christmas…Much Love… xxx Lynn xxx
A warmth envelopes us as Christmas draws near
This spiritual season makes Angels appear
They sit on your shoulders and tell you it’s time
To dig deep in your pockets to make the world fine!
Sometimes you may pass a man on the street
And look in disgrace at the filth on his feet
With rags on his back and a cap on the ground
Pleading for help, without making a sound!
Try not to judge and walk in his shoes
Just live like this person with nothing to lose
Feeling the winter and shivering with cold
No roof on your head but a cap you must hold!
The Angels are watching to see what you do
They sit on your shoulder to be nearer to you
“It’s Christmas! They whisper, Please don’t walk by.”
Praying you’ll hear their words which they cry!
Weep for the unfortunate, and show them you care
And act with compassion for the needy out there
Give them some hope and help them get through
Merry Christmas to all, may Angels work with you!

1 John 3:17
King James Version (KJV)
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
Hello friends…Just to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and to share a piece of my heart with you…At this time of year which should be a happy time I feel like there’s more which could be done to for the homeless who just need a chance to help them get through. I know there are con artists which use the homelessness as a ploy to deceive others but why should they suffer through their ignorance!!!…Quite a few years back I remember hearing of a homeless man who was due to move into self contained quarters within weeks but sadly was found frozen to death outside a shop entrance…It was written in the paper “When you’ve been living on the streets for so long you lose your dignity and feel unwanted and unloved!”…My new poem is dedicated to each of these people…Hence
The Gathering Of Angels
Much Love To You Always…xxx Lynn xxx
The snow kissed the Earth on a cold Winter’s day
A man on a bench dressed in rags starts to pray
These words did I hear as I passed slowly by
“Dear Lord hear my prayer as it’s now time to die!”
Then I listened with envy at what he next said
“Thanks for the stars which give light on my bed
Also for the friendship of the creatures so small
And forgiving my enemies when they have been cruel!”
His hands looked so cold with a hint of mid blue
And I hoped with my heart to help him get through!
My eyes felt so moist then I let out a sigh
A stranger to him yet he said “Please don’t cry!”
“Come sit little one for there’s room on this seat
Take my last bread which I beg you to eat!
Please take my cloak as this day is real cold
Then go to your home as your parents may scold!”
I whispered “Come hither, come home with me
Lets fly up to Heaven take my hand come and see!
The Lord has been waiting for your safe return
And has instructed an Angel to take his Son home!”
He reached for my hand with such trust and belief
No more was he cold and his heart felt no grief
As a rich man now enters in Heaven above
And the Angels all gather to bless him with LOVE!

35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39
Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least
of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
