God’s compassion was stirred as he watched from above,
and his eye shed a tear as he overflowed love.
But God, the creator, had created a plan
to bring light to the world and bring hope back to man.


Through her touching and inspiring poetry, Susan Shumake tells the story of the first Christmas in a new way, drawing from Scripture and a deep love of worship. The Gift of All Time is a poem that families can share together in their own homes, taking them back to a dark night in Bethlehem, to a little manger, where the greatest Gift ever given was born to a young girl as part of God’s plan.
