had these saved from this site from years ago....

a clear Christmas ornament. Inside was a nail, some sand, a thorn and a piece of wood. The sand to symbolize Jesus' footprints in the sand, the thorn for the crown He wore, the nail for His nail-pierced hands and the piece of wood for the cross.

The sand where Jesus walked with me
'Til I could walk no longer,
And that is when he carried me
'Til I had grown much stronger.

A nail like that which pierced His flesh
When he was crucified
Reminding me that for my sins,
My saviour suffered and died.

The wood reminds us of the cross
Where He drew His last breath;
The thorn is from the crown He wore
Pressed deep into His flesh.

This reminder is for a Christmas tree,
But what we should remember
Is to think of Jesus the whole year through
Not just in December.

An alternate last paragraph ('cause that first one is far from perfect!):
This ornament is full of things
To remind us of His love
And we should praise and honor Him,
Our Saviour up above!
©2004 Kelli Williams

On a hill far away
Stood a cross, Oh so tall
And a man they nailed there
Who died for us all

The thorns on his head
The nails in his skin
Our Lord Jesus Christ
Who paid for our sin

So the next time you wander
Leaving footprints behind
Remember Our saviour
Who gave his life for mankind

a different poem with a small bundle of raffia added to represent the straw form the manger, this kinda tied it into Christmas a little more. I made ornament hooks for these from gold wire and beads, and then topped with a gold ribbon bow. This is the second poem I used.

A babe lay in a bed of straw.
The shepherds came, and there they saw
The Lord of Lords, the Holy One.
But there was no room for God's own Son.

Jesus walked upon the land.
He left His prints across the sand.
He wants us to walk with Him each day,
And let God above guide our way.

The wooden cross that our Lord bore.
Today He knows our burdens and more.
Let's take our troubles to Him in prayer.
He's ready to listen anytime, anywhere.

A crown of thorns sat upon His head.
He became the King of Kings instead.
Recall the nails in Christ's feet and hands.
Our debts were paid, just as God planned.

Hang this ornament high on your tree.
And year by year let it be
A reminder of this message true,
God loves me and He loves you.
