Two Thousand and More Candles on the Cake

Two Thousand and more candles on the cake.
It's time to celebrate.

The birth of Jesus the
Babe in the manger,
With Mary and Joseph his father.

No King nor Ruler was told.
But Angeles sang to Shepherd's
Who were watching their herds.

Glory to God in the Highest
The Savior is born!
Make haste to Bethlehem this morn!

Lowly did they find Him!
In a manger did He lay!
Where Ox and Ass did stay.

Joseph stood by protecting!
While Mary His mother beamed with joy
Adoring her baby boy.

So CELEBRATE with TWO THOUSAND CANDLES and more!
For our Savior is knocking on the door!

I'm coming! I'm  coming!
Prepare for my coming!
For my Birthday is coming on
CHRISTMAS MORN!

That is when we can turn to the Saints for their help. A beautiful gift of God’s mercy is that when He brought you into relationship with Himself through baptism and made you a partaker of the Divine Nature, He gave you friends to help you on your journey to Christian maturity. Not only does He give you people in this life to help you respond to grace in…

This is the Good News the prophets foretold...
