I hear the special songs of Christmas
Caroling so beautifully,
As I prepare such loving gifts
Every treasured little one to please.
My heart-strings are pulled a myriad of ways
As I try to care for all I see,
While gathering all the sweetness needed
To stuff stockings on the mantelpiece.
I dream about the fun we'll have
Skating, sledding, creating angels in the snow,
Watching all the pretty lights..
Our hearts bursting with the night sky all aglow.
Then we'll be still to thank Jesus for His love
In giving of His life to make us new,
And make time to pray for those hurting
And trapped in places that seem so cruel...
I Know I am abundantly blessed, so loved
How can I express my gratitude,
Yet, there is a way to make this time more meaningful
To touch a heart, a love fulfill..
On this Christmas day
I will be thankful,
Oh yes I will.. be glad... for
The precious gift of you.
