Twas the Night Before Christmas...











This is a little different version of the Clement Moore Christmas Classic.










Twas the night before Jesus and all through the house
Not a creature was praying not one in the house
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.


The clildren were dressing to crawl into bed
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.


When out of the east there arose such a clatter
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash


When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be the day.


The light of His face made me comer my head
It was Jesus, returning just like he said
And though I possesed worldly wisdom and wealth
I cried when I saw Him, in spite of myself.


In The Book Of Life which he held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name
When He said "It's not here" my head hung in shame.


The people whose name had been written in love
He gathered to take to His Father above
With those who are ready He rose with out a sound
While all the rest were left standing around.


I fell to my knees but it was too late
I had waited too long and this sealed my fate
I stood and cried as they rose out of sight
Oh, If I had only been ready tonight.


In the words of the meaning is clear.
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all.



Every knee shall bow.Phillipians 2:8

Rolex has fleshed out the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches collection much more than the Rolex Datejust II at this time. The Rolex Day-Date II is only available in precious metals and there is no steel version. You can get the Rolex President in 18k white gold, yellow gold, pink gold, or platinum. Reviewed here is the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches ref. 218235, which is actually the second least expensive Rolex President replica watches uk. The least expensive is about $2,700 cheaper in 18k yellow gold. That feels like a rather large price difference from 18k yellow to 18k pink gold, even if it is Rolex's in-house produced Everose gold whose color is said not to fade. Based on that information, you can see why the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches is the "fancier" model. Rolex replica watches sale has intentionally offered distinct metal choices so as to give each of the watches a different type of buyer. There are also other differences such as the available bracelet as well as the dial choices.
