The lights are blinking merrily
The tinsels on the tree
It sits there in the window
For all the world to see.
The house is filled with holly
And pinecone scents the air
The Christmas cards keep coming
Each one is hung with care.
The gifts are tied with ribbons red
And topped with pretty bows
I am done with all the details
As far as Christmas goes.
The fire is softly glowing
I think about your touch
But Christmas isn't Christmas
I miss you oh, so much.
If I could have just anything
My Christmas wish would be
To wake up in the morning
And find you here with me.
I reminisce our Christmas' past
The joy and love we shared
Moonlit walks and midnight talks
And ways you showed you cared.
Staring at your picture
I long to be set free
Tonight the tears are streaming
As I hold it next to me.
Flakes of snow swirl through the air
I am braced for stormy weather
I wait for brighter days ahead
When we can be together.
So hold a place in heaven dear
Someday when life is through
I'll be the Christmas angel
Who shares this day with you.

Heavenly Father as I come to you
forgive us where we have failed You. Many loved
ones that are here still on earth that hurt from the
sting of death of their spouse, father, mother,
or other family member comfort them as only
you can. May your sweet spirit anoint and
comfort them as only You can and that they feel your
presence with them as
they go through this tribulation. Dear God those that do not or have
not accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior
that they would do so this time of the year that as
we celebrate the birth of your Son Jesus Christ.
Father be with our Armed Forces, place your
protective Armor around them and shield them
from harm. Lord forgive us as a sinful nation let us turn our ways back to You so that You will
continue to bless us. Father we ask all these this in Jesus holy name.
