The Beauty of Christ's Birth by larryfreedom(m): 8:46pm On Dec 30, 2012
I have written a Christmas story which you may be interested in:

Life portrays hardship and pleasure that combine to make us who we are.Hardship was what was presently present in Mike's life.He had no formal education nor a skill to make a living,but he definitely had a creator known to him as the Almighty.

Everyone believed nothing good could come out of Mike's existence.He was regarded as 'a failing failure';his parents never doubted this widely accepted opinion.

Like a sheep who had no shepherd,he wandered out of his house on a cold Tuesday morning.He realised everywhere radiated jubilation and excitement.As he continued on his journey that had no destination and purpose,he picked up cans and other things that he regarded as friends.He communed with them as if they were human but he was disappointed to find no response from them.
Suddenly,he had the scream of a man who seemed to be in trouble.Unaware to him,he was already in a bush.He walked towards the direction of the scream to quench his curiosity.
To his amazement,there was a white man who was with a camera running away from a lion.Mike roared angrily at the lion and spoke words only him and the lion could understand.The lion stopped at once and walked back timidly into the bush;it had been denied it's morning meal.

Mike helped the man get out of his panic by comforting and assuring him of his safety.The white man,who was a tourist was flabbergasted to see a man talk to animals.

Mike never considered what he had as a gift,but as a medium through which he was able to express himself to the animals who constantly kept him company whenever he was lonely or felt rejected.He knew he had offended one of his friends in order to save a fellow man he couldn't call a friend;but he had no choice.

The tourist,who was a professor of zoology at Oxford university decided to take Mike with him to the United States,sponsor his education inorder for him to be employed as an instructor
and teacher of the newly discovered animal language.

As Mike and his new friend walked back home,he heard a uniform noise from the church echoing "Merry Christmas".At that point,Mike discovered that day was the Christmas day.

'A day Jesus was born,a day his talent paid dividend,a day a no one became someone, a day the rejected became accepted and comforted.'Tears of joy and satisfaction rolled down freely from of his eyes."Christmas,a day Jesus was born to wipe away sorrowful tears in order for us to weep joyful tears,"Mike shouted this to the hearing of the white man who patted him on the back and muttered silently,"IT'S ALL OVER NOW."

I await your comments on this story.Thanks.[/color][color=#990000]

It's a nice short story my dear.
Really, His birth has given hope to the hopeless.
