The Little Girl With Magic Shoes A Christmas Story


imagesIn a far of country where food and money was difficult to obtain, there lived a little girl called Jenny with her grandmother in a small hut. Little Jenny had no shoes she used to watch the rich children playing in the park with their beautiful shoes.


As Christmas was approaching she knelt down by the side of her bed and prayed “ Dear Santa please give me new shoes for Christmas I have been good please oh please can I have red new shoes, it was a cold Christmas eve she held on to her shawl as she prayed,Unknown-2

Suddenly in the quietness of the night she heard sleigh bells ringing and as she looked outside the window she gasped in surprise as she saw Santa with his reindeers

Santa put his finger to his mouth and said shhhhh and gave Jenny a beautiful red parcel and told her to open it in the morning

Jenny gave Santa a hug and tried to sleep but she was too excited to sleep, As the sun rose in the early dawn Jenny ran to her parcel and opened it with sheer delight and there she saw the most red shoes with buttons. So Jenny put on her red shoes which fitted like a glove and out of curiosity she pressed the blue button, suddenly she was flying in the sky and she screamed in shock, fear and happiness, she then landed on a beautiful island and there were beautiful trees berry bushes and plumps and coconut trees, Jenny sat down and was eating a juicy plum when she met a cute little boy called Daniel, Daniel taught Jenny how to pluck the juiciest plumps and also how to climb the coconut tree and then jenny pressed the red button and was back at home with her grandmother  ,She then showed her grandmother her magic shoes and her grandmother hugged Jenny with joy, but it was Christmas day and there was no food for grandma or Jenny and they were both very hungry, suddenly jenny saw the pink light flickering on her shoe and then she pressed the pink light and immediately there was a table with turkey, rice, noodles, cake and pudding granny and jenny ate till they were full and granny warned jenny not to tell her secret of her shoes to anyone.Unknown

Near Jenny house there was a wicked goblin, who was very curious, As granny went to sleep after the wonderful lunch Jenny pressed the purple button and immediately the hut was turned into a mansion, the wicked goblin could not understand how their hut had turned into a mansion and then noticed jenny running with her shoes with the lights flickering as the goblin started following jenny running after her jenny got scared till the shoes spoke to her and told her to press the black button and immediately the goblin was sent to another planet not to trouble Jenny or her grandmother anymore

In the meantime Jenny and Daniel became very close and became best friends, when Jenny was 16 years and Daniel was 18 years Jenny and her grandmother moved to the Island and Daniel and jenny got married, as Daniel kissed jenny they heard sleigh bells in the sky and then saw Santa on the sledge waving at them jenny gave Santa a flying kiss and as Jenny and Daniel held hands they heard ho ho ho merry Christmas and happy wedding dayUnknown-1

They got married on Christmas day as Jenny looked down her shoes had changed to glass slippers to match her wedding dress there were no more buttons

Sometimes dear children Santa may not bring big gifts but small gifts which can change your life around, so when you write to Santa ask him for that special little gift for special little you

Ho ho ho merry christmasUnknown-3

A poem on Love

Alone she sat and wept

Looking out the window

Why me, why me she screamed

This was not the life she dreamed

Oh there is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She met him briefly

But his eyes, his body piercing her soul,

She knew He was somebody

Somebody too great

To like someone like her

Was this some cosmic joke called fate ?

They didn’t even date

Oh there is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She had fallen, fallen , fallen in love

This majestic gorgeous God from up above

They say a sign of God is a dove

Like an instrument of love

She had fallen in love with a star from up above

can a dove be a sign of love

can a star shine so brightly

As she looks up at the sky

Seeing his green grey eyes

As the moon under the clouds hides

She knew she had to run

She may never be a nun

But his love conquered her soul, her being her heart

There is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She got out of the train

Her life could have gone down the drain

But as she looked up

His hands hugged her tight

His love she will no longer fight

Now the future has a brilliant light

Love is better than dope

She looked into his eyes and said

Love is better than dope

Dope, dope, dope love is better than dope

A little Bit About India and My Testimony

Hi namasthe my name is Sangeetha Alexander wife of Mark Alexander who came to Northern Ireland to study at the Belfast Bible College 10 years back. As you can see I am from India which has a population of 1.1 billion, there are 29 states and 22 official languages and also 1650 other languages and dialects.

Christianity was brought to India by ST Thomas the disciple also known as doubting Thomas he preached the gospel in southern part of India. Christians have lived in Kerala for almost 2 thousand years.

Catholic and protestant missionaries brought Christianity to India almost 200 years ago as a result the percentage of Christians is 2.5 per cent which is about 25 million people however the unofficial figures is 5 per cent or 50 million praise God for that.

Being a Christian is not a problem in the 4 southern states as long as you do not take part in evangelism how ever missionaries, evangelists and pastors in small towns and villages face a lot of precaution. My father’s grand parents were Hindu converts and were brought to the lord through the work of missionaries. My mother’s grandparents were brought to the lord by CMS missionaries and Amy charmihcal an northern Irish missionary was also involved in bring people to Christ in the same area of my mothers grandparents.

The church is growing in spite of the persecution especially the assembly of God churches, the largest city church is in Chennai with 50000 people and the second largest church is in Bangalore with 20,000 members

The church my father served in Bangalore had 1500 members every Sunday. Many churches support missionaries in North India as most Christians are from southern India, churches are involved in mission work either by sending missionaries or supporting mission work one church in our city in Bangalore supports 98 missionaries and want to make this figure 100 next year. people have learnt to give sacrificially to missions and evangelism. Being a Christian is not easy in north and east India as the Hindu political parties called BJP have started programmes to reconvert Christians to Hinduism and the using of threats and violence is common.

My great grandfather came from a family of Hindu priests however my great grand father wanted to join the army so he came to Bangalore which is a big city, he was also searching for the true God as the Hindu gods did not give him the peace he desired in his heart. He went to the mosque but Islam did not fill the void in his heart. finally he met the missionaries of the London mission society was convinced that Jesus was the true lord and saviour and became a Christian.

My great grand father and my great grandma reached out to the Hindu family members with the gospel.

A few years back my grandmother and her brother estimated about 200 family members became active Christians because of the influence of my great grand parents..

I accepted Jesus as my saviour at 10 years of age, I always wanted to serve the Lord, There have been failures, difficult times and also happy times in my life but the Lord has never failed me nor forsaken me, there have been times I cried out to the lord where are you and sought the lord and He answered me with his peace in my heart knowing that he was and is within me, I am now going to conclude with the song the potters hand, as this song is close to my heart sometimes the lord melts moulds us breaks us and then leaves on a self till his appointed time and then fills us with his glory, let us recommit our lives to the lord as we read the words of the potters hand

“The Potter’s Hand”

Beautiful Lord, Wonderful Saviour

I know for sure, all of my days are held in your hands, crafted

into your perfect plan

You gently call me into your presence guiding me by Your Holy Spirit

Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes

I’m captured by Your holy calling

Set me apart, I know you’re drawing me to yourself

Lead me Lord I pray

Take me, Mold me, use me, fill me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

You gently call me into your presence guiding me by your Holy Spirit

Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through your eyes

I’m captured by your Holy calling

set me apart, I know your drawing me to yourself

lead me Lord I pray

Take me, Mold me, use me, fill me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me

I give my life to the potters hand

The Key Word Is Justification

When HE came to earth,

The virgin Mary gave birth

There was no party, laughter or mirth

But the King lay down His life,

To be born in a manger

Being called a stranger

In his family and hometown he was not accepted,

The Pharisees they respected,

He stood out and was called ordinary

But this great awesome Christ was extraordinary in the eyes of God

Because He was and is the Son Of God

He worked in His Father’s business in carpentry

But His calling was to save the world

From racism, jealousy and bigotry

Some called Him a clown

And the Pharisees wanted Him to drown

To keep His head down

I am sure He wondered why He was even born

But at His death which was more fascinating than His birth

The curtain in the holy of holies was torn

That was why through Justification our lives now have a transformation

This is the story of the exodus of redemption

This is no imagination

There will come a time of migration

To the New City

Sans racism, sans jealousies, sans bigotry, sans comparisons, sans competition

But filled with love from up above

Is that a dove

Yes it is time for peace all over the world

From the European Union to the United Nation Organisation

One Lord, One World United By Love

There are people debating cynicism

Worried about Gnosticism,

But simple child like faith will change the nations

For the city of the Lord

It is real,

It is written in eschatology

This is not some funny philosophy

When one sees it it is like walking in a life so magnificently surreal

It is like going through a wall

Made for both great and small of every race, language and creed

With no worry for money or greed,

He meets every need,

The golden gates are awaiting

Lord this eschatology is finished

Past, present and future are one

Lord Christ Is The Son

Little children playing, singing, laughing ,

ruling ,

This is the New World ruled and governed by children

With wise men as judges yet no punishment for evil in the past

Because this world is made for Love, by Love, with LOVE

AmenPhoto on 30-08-2015 at 16.11 (1)
