No Vacancy?

No Vacancy?

 I wonder how a star so bright,

Could not be seen on that starry night?

The keeper of the Inn said; “Go Away,”

When Joseph knocked on his door that day.

Was he thinking, “I can’t spare the time!

Don’t ask me for another dime!

My days are short but demands are great…

Don’t add more tasks to my plate!”

What if he had stopped awhile,

And noticed Mary, due with child.

Would he have been more kind indeed

To see she was someone in need?

Or did he stare and judge the pair,

Then look away without a care?

Their clothes were worn and soiled too

They did not fit in, this wouldn’t do.

Without the Inn, prospects were dim

Yet Joseph did not surrender or give in.

He knew God had a bigger plan

One, he did not understand.


So he led Mary to a stable near.

I wonder did she feel any fear?

Knowing she’d give birth in the hay

Did she doubt God in any way?

I can only imagine Mary’s delight

Holding the Christ Child on that Holy night

Her fears and worries turned to joy

When she gave birth to that little boy.

Do YOU accept this gift of love?

Sent to all from God above

A Savior born is Christ the King!

Can you hear the angels sing?!

It does not cost you a dime you see

Christ paid the price for you and me.

Unlock the door to your heart today

Invite Christ in, do not delay!
