Merry Christmas 2009 from SPWB!

Merry Christmas from all of us at Sarah’s Web Brigade and the Sarah Palin Web Brigade to all of our readers! May your day be blessed as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, whose birth, death, and resurrection guaranteed eternal life for all who would accept His free gift! As we spend time with friends and family today, let us take time to thank Him for all he has done and continues to do for all of us.

The famous poem below describes the impact of His life on the institutions and history of the human race. What the poem fails to mention are the many deeds of Jesus while on Earth. The Book of John ends with this statement:

John 21:25 (King James Version):

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village
The child of a peasant woman
He grew up in another obscure village
Where he worked in a carpenter shop
Until he was thirty

He never wrote a book
He never held an office
He never went to college
He never visited a big city
He never travelled more than two hundred miles
From the place where he was born
He did none of the things
Usually associated with greatness
He had no credentials but himself

He was only thirty three

His friends ran away
One of them denied him
He was turned over to his enemies
And went through the mockery of a trial
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves
While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing
The only property he had on earth

When he was dead
He was laid in a borrowed grave
Through the pity of a friend

Nineteen centuries have come and gone
And today Jesus is the central figure of the human race
And the leader of mankind's progress
All the armies that have ever marched
All the navies that have ever sailed
All the parliaments that have ever sat
All the kings that ever reigned put together
Have not affected the life of mankind on earth
As powerfully as that one solitary life
