    Based on a true story on the westside of Chicago....


    Looking down from the penthouse
    The Watcher watches as a sad lad
    Wanders thru the streets.
    Momma is on crack, dad in the joint
    They say life is worth living but what’s the point?
    So a gun he takes not sure of what to do
    Points at his head hoping soon he’ll be dead.
    But a bright light appears from up above
    Let the boy know of a greater love
    That touches the heart, body, and soul
    Able to make the incomplete whole.
    Boy goes home, going over things in his mind
    As Watcher looks on the voice from the light tells me he’ll be fine.
    A Merry Christmas he shall have this night
    For he has been given a new lease on life.

    Shining down hope on the hopeless!

    A beautiful rendition to remind us that the light represents not only direction but love/hope/faith to make another day!
    Through the greatest gift of all "The Baby Jesus"
    "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish , but have everlasting life"-Joh 3:16
    Thanks for sharing and reminding us that though we watch from afar, our prayers can touch many!
    Blessings on Ya House! And Merry Christmas...Thanks for that one, thanks a lot!:spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :star: Shine on!
    Missed your wisdom Brother watcher!
