Susan Michelle Michaels

Visits Baby Jesus

 For our sweet Susan, with love, from

Mommy and Daddy

Merry Christmas 2015


     Of all the holidays, Susan Michelle Michaels, age 4, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, liked Christmas the best. Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Grandma exchanged presents with Susan and told Christmas stories about the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.


     The star on top of the Christmas tree reminded Susan of the one that guided the three Wise Men to the Christ Child.


     Gazing at the manger scene near the Christmas tree, Susan thought about following the star with the three Wise Men.  Suddenly, a voice called her name.


     "Susan , come with us and follow the star!" said one of the Wise Men.  "You may ride with our caravan on this little donkey."


     Susan quickly dressed in traveling clothes and joined the caravan.  After riding a long way, they arrived in Jerusalem. King Herod commanded his servants to bring them to the palace.


     The Wise Men told Herod they were following the bright star to find Baby Jesus.


     The king said, "When you find the Child, return and tell me where He lives so I may also worship him."


     Susan remembered Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Grandma saying that Herod was afraid Jesus would one day be king, and that Herod really planned to destroy Baby Jesus.


     "I must tell the Wise Men about what Herod intends to do," Susan thought.


     After the caravan left the palace, she explained Herod's evil plan to the Wise Men.


     "That scoundrel!" In that case we won't tell anyone where to find the Child," said one Wise Man.


     "Jesus will be safe, thanks to Susan," said another.


     The caravan continued its long journey.  The bright star guided the travelers like a beacon of light.


     "Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Grandma would enjoy this wonderful journey," thought Susan .


     Finally, the bright ray of light pointed to the small town of Bethlehem.  Sheep, horses and cows silently welcomed the caravan.


     Joseph opened the door and invited the travelers inside.


     "Welcome, Susan .  You have journeyed from a distant land," said Joseph.


     The Wise Men entered and bowed low before Mary and Baby Jesus.  They presented costly gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 


     Susan crept close to Jesus and His mother, Mary.


     Jesus was making little baby sounds while his mother hummed a lullaby.


     "I wish Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Grandma were here to feel God's love," Susan said.


     Mary smiled at Susan and said, "You can always feel God's love if you keep Him close to your heart."


     The glow of light around the Holy Family became soft and Golden.  Jesus slept soundly in his mother's arms.  Susan also felt sleepy.


     Finally, a Wise Man gently lifted Susan onto the little donkey that waited in the Bethlehem night.  She quickly fell to sleep during the long ride home.


     The Wise Man whispered, "Farewell child.  We have brought you home to Milwaukee, Wisconsin."


     Susan could see that the manger scene near the Christmas tree had changed. 


     The three Wise Men had presented their costly gifts, and the little donkey stood nearby.  But Baby Jesus was no longer just lying in the manager.


     Now, Susan held Jesus close to her heart.
