"Christmas Blessings"

Each day is a new beginning

To see things anew

To file the bad days away

And let the light shine thru


Some promises are kept

And some are broken

On our journey thru life

Keep a loving heart open


Being with family and friends

At this time of the year

Gives one a renewed perspective

With new hope and cheer


Count your blessings this Christmas

And share a spark of warmth with others

In a world that is troubled and needy

Treat everyone as your sister and brother


This time of the year is a celebration

Of the Christ Child's birth 

And our remembrance of the true meaning

 Of this special time on earth
