"My Christmas List of Blessings"

"My Christmas List of Blessings"

My Christmas List is more than just a way to keep track of
The special people God has brought into my life to love.

It's like a treasured scrapbook filled with pleasant memories
Of all the times God's answered prayer through friends and family.

Every name's a touch stone that leads to a place and time
Where God has used another's heart to reach out and touch mine.

It may have happened years ago or even yesterday
But every person on my list has changed my life some way.

Through simple conversation a warm hug or a shared meal
Every person on my list has helped me grow or heal
Or laugh or love or learn or smile...the blessings never end
As God allows our paths to cross as family and friends.

So please know that this greeting is more than a Christmas wish
It's a "thank you" card to God for putting on my list
Each and every one whose name I've come to hold so dear...
Those who've shown me Christmas joy each day of the year.
