Christmas


Every time a hand reaches out
To help another....that is Christmas
Every time someone puts anger aside
And strives for understanding
That is Christmas

Every time people forget their differences
And realize their love for each other
That is Christmas

May this Christmas bring us
Closer to the spirit of human understanding
Closer to the blessing of peace!

A Little Child Shall Lead


by Carol Sanborn
"Dear Santa." said the letter
That was slowly being read,
"I seem to have a lot of time
To think...... while I'm in bed;
And so I thought I'd write to you,
As I do every year;
I hope you're well and happy now
That Christmas is so near.

It won't be very long until
You'll soon be on your way
To leave the presents that
will make A happy Christmas Day.

Now if you think that I was good,
And goodness knows I've tried...
I have a small suggestion,
Tho I know you must decide.

I've heard about the shortages
The world is facing now......
But if we all would share a bit
It might just help somehow.

So Santa, if you should be short
Of Christmas dolls this year,
I thought I'd say,
" My last years' doll Is precious and is dear;

And really since she's almost new,
It has occurred to me
You really wouldn't have to leave
A new one 'neath the tree.

Instead, perhaps, you just might
leave A doll for Mary Dove
Who's also in the children's ward
And needs a doll to love.

She says her parents told her that
With all their bills to pay,
That they'd be lucky just to buy
The food for Christmas Day!

So please, dear Santa, don't forget
To stop for Mary too;
And then she'll have a doll or toy
And she won't feel so blue.

I'm tired now, but Santa dear,
I have not finished yet.
Tomorrow I'll continue so
My nurse won't be upset.

But the letter, still unfinished ,
Ne'er reached old Santa's hand.....
The young girls' parents found it
On her little bedside stand.

With dampened eyes they packed it
With their daughters other things;
But somehow, this poignant letter
Helped soothe away death's sting.

Then just before the parents left,
They stopped a nurse to say
Please give this doll to Mary Dove ,
From Santa.....Christmas Day!

And should there be another child
That Santa might pass by
Please let us know,
so we can add to Santa's short supply!

The nurse who'd seen the letter
said God bless you for this deed........
In life and death you daughter proved
A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD.....


Santa's Prayer On Christmas Eve


By Warren D.
The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
But Santa still knelt by the side of the bed.
"Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.
There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.

I must jump in my sleigh and streak through the sky,
Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.
I will visit each household before the first light,
I'll cover the world and all in one night.

With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.
To get in the house is the difficult part,
So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.

My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.
The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
I will fill all the stockings and not leave a track.
I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.

I can do all these things Lord, only through You,
I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.
All this is to honor the birth of the One,
That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.

So to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,
Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job.
