This year, for a change of pace from our usual Truth in the Tinsel Christmas countdown activities, we had the opportunity to use The Christmas Cross Hunt book. The activities and connections between the scriptures of Jesus’ birth and death were wonderful to study this month.
As much as my kids enjoyed running around finding the cross and doing the crafts and all, I kept being drawn to the parallels and prophecies fulfilled.
So this year’s Christmas poem uses the lines of poetry, humble rhyming quatrains, to highlight a few of these amazing Christmas and the Cross connections.
Oh, How He Loves Us
How he was laid–
Gently in a manger
How he was laid—
In the tomb of a stranger
How he was praised—
Glory in the Highest
How he was raised—
The dayspring who visits us
How God so gave—
His life for the world
How He shall save—
His people shall be healed
How he was found—
Kings and shepherds wonder
How grace abounds—
A child became our Savior!
