What is Christmas without family , without presents underneath the tree
What is Christmas without faith , hope and love
Given to us from the Lord up above.
What is Christmas without the smiles and joys
Of the children playing with their toys.
When your mind is empty and not a memory to be found
And you feel like your dreams are laying on the ground.
This is the time that you look at the world thru the
Eyes of every boy and girl.
The spirit of a child is an everlasting light that reminds you
Of another child s sacrifice.
This vision was seen by three kings from afar who traveled
To where he was by following a star.
The gifts they gave was the start of something new
And to this day the tradition has followed through.
It is called Christmas- Christ – Mas – meaning more of Christ !
What is Christmas ?
It is different for everyone ! But for me it’s the birth of GODS SON .

Man cannot live by bread alone , he needs
A woman of flesh and bone.
So GOD took the rib which was the closest to the
Heart of man to create his perfect plan . Women !
How can man not love what’s a part of him
That’s why women laugh and grin.
He created the woman to be soft , gentle , loving
And caring and all her feelings and thoughts
With men they are sharing.
They was given a valve to let out their frustrations and fears
And they called it a woman’s tears.
They was given another valve for man to enjoy
The fruits of his labor , with new lives that they could favor.
Now when his work was complete ,was when the woman convinced the man
The fruit to eat .

God has tears in his eyes seeing the self destruction of mankind
His Son gave up his life so that we could live !
What more does he have to give !
So many centuries have gone by but we still choose to live a lie.
We still have wars , sicknesses, hunger, poverty and hate
Is this going to be our fate ?
He had flooded this earth once before and said he would
Not do that any more !
Now we may be on the verge of a nuclear war
Which will wipe out everything from shore to shore.
For thousands of years man has created beliefs of their own
And believers in God they would throw stones.
Christianity was created with the apostles twelve
When in the house of the Lord they did dwell.
I know my Lord is with me every day – he walks
In front of me to show me the way .
Things that I have done that I feel so ashamed
But he forgives me when I call his name.
When I have weakened and done wrong
He’s built me up and made me strong.
Most of humanity can now relate , because the
Power of his love is so great.
Every problem that we’ve overcome , was the work that
He had done.
Let us all join together and wipe away his tears forever.

We cannot choose what life gives us , but we can
Choose how to live our lives.
We can choose spiritual or material.
Choosing material we have to cheat , lie , and connive
To achieve our goals,
Choosing spiritual we leave everything in the hands of GOD
But we tend to forget that GOD said : “help yourself
And I will help you “
So why not get the best of both worlds and set your goals in life
And strive to achieve them with the help of the LORD.
Tell him your goal for the day and ask him to help you attain it.
“ NEVER GIVE UP “ on yourself and definitely never
Give up on GOD.
Everything comes in his time , not ours.
Success is a slow painful learning experience , so you can know
What to do when a particular situation arises.
We can achieve the material things without having to cheat ,
Lie and connive and hurting people along the way so you
Can have some better days.
We have to be thankful for the basic things in life , such as Health
Which is the most important of all , because we then get bitter and angry
With everything .as long as we have a roof over our heads , clothes on our backs
And food to eat and water to drink .
We’ll be fine , it just takes a little time.
Just remember “ NEVER GIVE UP “ and maybe share our good fortune with others.

My heart is warmer and my soul is on fire
My spiritual life is climbing much higher
I found myself after searching for so long
It’s always been where it belonged.
The cross I carry around my neck has filled
Me with the greatest love yet.
I hold it in my hand and I kiss it all day
And to him I do pray.
My prayers are answered every time that I speak
And only him do I seek.
No longer do I have an emptiness where all
My fears I did hide, just an exhilarating feeling deep inside.
Like an empty bottle that is filled with wine
He fills my spirit with a love divine.
Call his name when you are in despair, and your problems
With him you share.
You’ll feel a calmness in your mind, and the relief
Which is hard to find.
Put it in his hands and believe with all your heart
And he will tear the problems apart.

It is only natural for you to cry when someone
Passes to the other side.
Thoughts will come into your mind of memories they left behind.
We are here for a short spell and in others hearts we will dwell.
Like a puff of smoke we will pass , for we have done
What GOD had asked.
We taught and showed you the strength of GOD
And put him into your safe heart.
He is the strength of faith , hope , and love
And no matter what disasters hit our land
He has us safe in his hands.

LORD I cannot thank you for all that you’ve done
My day was dark and you brought out the sun.
With all my worries and my tears – you took away all my fears.
I held the cross from my chain and asked for blessings in your name.
When life becomes like a tornado tossing everything around
You held me firm on the ground.
I hold this cross in my hand cause my life you understand
This cross is your symbol of life , faith , love and hope
And this shows us how to cope.
Such a small little cross which holds billions of hearts
And with the twelve Apostles it did start.
A cross so small above my heart – I kiss it daily for my day to start.
From the Sacred Heart of Jesus that has endured the ravages of time
To make this gift “ yours and mine “ .
