Making A List ~ Anchored In Him ~ Christmas 2003

Snowflakes softly falling 
upon your window they play 
your blankets snug around you, 
into sleep you drift away. 

I bend to gently kiss you, 
when I see that on the floor, 
there's a letter, neatly written 
I wonder who it's for. 

I quietly unfold it 
making sure you're still asleep, 
it's a Christmas list for Santa 
one my heart will always keep. 

It started just as always 
with the toys seen on TV, 
a new watch for your father 
and a winter coat for me. 

But as my eyes read on 
I could see that deep inside 
there were many things you wished for 
that your loving heart would hide. 

You asked if your friend Molly 
could have another Dad; 
it seems her father hits her 
and it makes you very sad. 

Then you asked dear Santa 
if the neighbors down the street 
could find a job, that he might have 
some food, and clothes, and heat. 

You saw a family on the news 
whose house had blown away, 
"Dear Santa, send them just one thing, 
a place where they can stay." 

"And Santa, those four cookies 
that I left you for a treat, 
could you take them to the children 
who have nothing else to eat." 

"Do you know that little bear I have 
the one I love so dear? 
I'm leaving it for you 
to take to Africa this year." 

"And as you fly your reindeer 
on this night of Jesus' birth, 
could your magic bring to everyone 
goodwill and peace on earth." 

"There's one last thing before you go, 
so grateful I would be, 
if you'd smile at Baby Jesus 
in the manger by our tree." 

I pulled the letter close to me' 
I felt it melt my heart. 
those tiny hands had written 
what no other could impart. 

"And a little child shall lead them," 
was whispered in my ear 
as I watched you sleep on Christmas Eve 
while Santa Claus was here. 


God's highest Gift awakens our deepest gratitude ! ! !
