BRIGHT CHRISTMAS by Andrew Clements (abridged)
I have always been an angel, Always.
I've never needed a clock or a calendar,
because here where I live
there's really no time at all.
People sometimes think that Christmas came suddenly,
one holy night. I know better.
Other things came first - amazing things, beautiful things, important things.
And I saw them all
Because when a message goes from heaven to earth, it's not a letter
It's an angel
And the angel doesn't just carry the message
The angel IS the message.
I remember the star in the sky above Bethlehem.
All the songs and messages
we had ever brought to earth
they all led up to that one night,
and they lit up the sky.
We were watching over Joseph and his wife
when the innkeeper sent them away
We knew where they were going
We knew they would be safe and warm
in the quiet of the stable.
And Mary, I will always remember her face when she heard us sing.
Mary knew that this child was bringing the
In the hills above Bethlehem, I remember the faces of the shepherds, looking up.
It was time for the great truth to shine on the Earth.
Earth now had a heavenly light of its own, and it made me sing louder and sweeter.
Our song was like the smile of God.
Once I sing a song, the song never stops.
It's like a star that burns forever.
Christmas is the brightest and the happiest song I ever sang.
The star is still shining,
and I am still singing,
and the earth is still singing back.
Christmas Blessings my friends - with love from Cookie and mom Mary
