Christmas Giveaway!

Firstly, let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you’re enjoying celebrating with family and friends, or on your own. Whether Christian or not, it’s impossible to ignore the significance of Jesus of Nazareth, who has shaped so much of our history over the last two thousand years.

And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17)

As a thank you for being a part of my life this year I’m going to give away three paperback copies of my book The Philosophy of a Mad Man. I would like to give you all a copy but I think the postage costs would be more than I can presently afford.

To find out all about the book, go here.

So I guess we need some kind of competition question. Let’s have a bit of festive fun. To enter, write a four line poem with a Christmas theme and post it in the comments. I will pick my three favourites and the writer of each will each win a copy of the book. I will post the book to you, wherever you are in the world 🙂

The competition will be open until the end of the year.

*****UPDATE: The competition is now closed, to see who won watch the video at the bottom of this post*****

As they say about scary fairground rides; Don’t be shy, give it a try!

    1. Haha, no worries, Lynn 🙂 It’s just a bit of fun, for the purposes of this competion, there’s no such thing as a bad poem! But don’t worry – I’ll consider your comment a competition entry 🙂 Merry Christmas!!

  1. Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem went.
    There she gave birth to Jesus who was sent.
    The King of Heaven came to earth;
    To pay the price for our new birth.

    The above poem is based on Luke 2:1-7, which is the heart of Christmas.
    Have a joyous and happy Christmas and celebrate the coming of the King.

  2. Thanks for the opportunity Steven, here is a poem on the The Magi

    Learned yes, wise pra’ps not
    For they went to the palace and not the manger cot
    A king they sought, and two kings they met
    But it was with babe king that their needs were met.

  3. An humble birth in a feeding trough
    Our King’s beginning was small
    Yet he overcame sin and death
    A defeat which conquered all.

  4. The Christmas Man

    In a manger was born
    In a cold night..
    Surrounded by Love..
    And stars made Him light..

    His father and mother
    were there with Him..
    They were keeping in their arms
    the King of Kings..

    Some came from afar
    and gifts they gave
    to the One whose Name
    brought peace in that day..

    Christmas was there:
    Let all the Angel sing
    “Glory, Glory to the Risen King”

    Now we see lights, gifts and trees
    And Children singing “Let there be peace..!”

    Christmas is Joy,Peace and Love
    People together: they show it more.
    A hug, a kiss, a song in the night
    We want to remember the Born Light.

    He bore our pain, sorrow and tears
    To show us Love that won’t disappear..

    Santa will go back to his place..
    We won’t forget these lovely days..

    The Child was born: now He’s a Man.
    He lives Forever..
    Christmas.. will never end..
