My Grown Up Christmas Wish For You!

Gifts from the heart...made with love!

Gifts from the heart…made with love!

This Christmas Season…

As I hustle my way through the Season I try to reflect on the things that matter most to me.

I’m sure we all have our favorite things about Christmas. It is such a wonderful time of year for most of us…but not for all.

I am thinking, more than ever before, about those less fortunate, those who have experienced loss, those who are alone, those who have been rejected, those who have lost a loved one, those that struggle with illness or disease and those with broken hearts.

As I went through my gift list and tried to choose a gift for each loved one on my list I gave much thought to what I might give each one…what would I give…just from the heart?

I would…

Encourage

Comfort

Praise

Support

Love

Listen

Care

Love

These are the gifts that I will try to give…throughout the year!

I have some favorite Christmas songs. One of those songs has always been…

My Grown Up Christmas List

This is a song that has been playing over and over in my mind since our Nation’s recent tragedy and the loss of innocent lives as well as some heartache of my own. It is a song that tugs at my heart…but also reminds me to hope. Christmas is about hope and promise…about our Father’s love.

“My Grown Up Christmas List”

(there are some beautiful videos of this song on You Tube. Here is a link to one that I like, sung by Michael Buble’)

My Grown Up Christmas List “A Message for Peace

Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee…
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies.
Well, I’m all grown up now… And still need help somehow,
I’m not a child But my heart still can dream.
So here’s my lifelong wish… My grown up Christmas list,
Not for myself but for a world in need…
No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts…
Everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win
And love would never end…
This is my grown up Christmas list!
As children we believed …
The grandest sight to see…
Was something lovely wrapped beneath our tree.
But heaven only knows…
That packages and bows…
Can never heal a hurting human soul!
No more lives torn apart …
That wars would never start …
And time would heal all hearts…
And everyone would have a friend…
And right would always win  and love would never end …
This is my grown up Christmas list!
This is my only life long wish. This is my grown up Christmas list!
That every one of us finds and gives…love…forgiveness…hope!
’til we meet again…
My Christmas wish for you…
may you experience …Joy, Hope and Love!
Merry Christmas!
