Because the season's near.
I didn't ask for riches
But for gifts so much more dear.
With your family all round,
And for carols to inspire you
With their old familiar sound.
I asked for quiet moments
In your heart on Christmas morn,
For a special time to celebrate
The Savior who was born.
I asked for friends to send their best
That you might know they care;
I asked for peace and love and hope,
And I know God heard my prayer.
If you are reading this post today, not only are you seeing what I've written, but also are the recipient of a promise from me. It will be my privilege and honor to pray for you every day in the coming year. On your good days and bad days, you can rest assured that you are being prayed for by me. That is my Christmas gift to you.
I love you all,
May the JOY of the Lord always be upon you!
