A Thousand Years of Peace! by A Carpenter's Son

We have been promised a thousand years of peace. We have also been told of a comforter. Where are we going to find this comforter? When are they going to show up? And how can one man or woman make a difference in this world? Really good questions. We have all had many tests with questions in our lives. I find it difficult to answer those questions from outside sources. I have still walked the path and asked the same questions from my inner sources. This is what has come to my mind.

The Trap for St. Nicholas by Celtic Bard

A Christmas Story
A different take on the classic Christmas Poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" that most of us know as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore. I took the general layout and a few lines from the original poem, sprinkled it with some epic fantasy, and came up with "The Trap for St. Nicholas."
