New Year Wish

I kneel and thank our Father
For the blessings of this year.
For all the love He has given
For every joy and tear.
I thank Him for each dear friend
He has placed within my way
I ask Him to stay beside me
And with us always to stay.
I ask him to bless each dear one
That He has given me.
To hold each and everyone
To set their worries free.
God keep you all with His hands.
And hold you near His Heart.
May 2011 Bring you closer to Him
And my you never part.

My Christmas Wish

My wish for you this Christmas
Is a simple little thing.
I wish for you that joy
That made the angels sing.
I wish for you that peace
...Come done to earth one day.
When He lay in the manger
Sleeping on the hay.
I wish for you the love
Of our Holy Family.
I wish for you that Gift
Who came to set us free.
This is my Christmas wish.
As simple as it may seem
May God enfold you each.
And bring you joy remembering.

Making Ready For Christmas

Making ready for Christmas.
Preparing for the day.
When Jesus comes to our hearts.
As he did that Christmas day.
Baking and cleaning.
My home and my heart.
Shopping and wrapping gifts
Are simply a start.
My soul swept clean.
Hope I can keep it that way.
So Jesus will find me
Ready on Christmas Day.
God bless and keep you.
And all you hold dear.
And grant you peace and joy
In the coming New Year.
