Sacrificial Giving

to understand the giving
Christ coming into the world
choosing the cross
not a throne made of gold
looking to the widow
her meager coins added
but giving sacrificially
love in her heart

so is the moment,
Christ come to earth
the babe, the manger
to understand his humble birth
we are given more
than we can imagine
in his descent from heaven
walking as a man
