Christmas Wishes turned to Prayers

When I was young, so many years ago,
I enjoyed Christmas time, like most little girls I know.
I would write out my wish list and check it once or twice.
Then, Iíd set out cookies for Santa to come that night.
I would wake up the next morning no matter where I lived.
just to find that I got most of what was on my list.
Many years have past, most my family is gone.
My wish lists are now prayers to a true living God.
I am so thankful for Christmas, even today,
He sent His Son Jesus and He hears me when I pray.
He places my tears in a bottle just for Him to keep.
He has special angels to watch me while I sleep.
He knows that my journey through life has been long and hard.
He directs me by His Spirit and the Light of His Word.
I was born two months early, so I did not weigh much.
I had to be put in incubation, far away from my parentís touch.
I know now His presence was near.
I believe that is why I am still here.
The Heavenly Father knows me like no other.
He was even there the day I lost my mother.
He has always been with me all of my days.
And I know He hears me when I pray.
He knows my hopes and my dreams.
He delights in the praises I sing.
This year, when I sit down to form my list.
The contents will not be for the things I wish.
It will be a list of heart filled prayers,
so that others may experience His Loving care.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
