Poetry Saturday—The Christmas Wish

purple-christmas-treeA Christmas wish is special,
It is full of heart and warmth,
Especially if you share it
With God and Jesus in your heart.

So go and tell about Him,
For He was born on Christmas day,
To teach each and everyone one of us
How to live the Christ-like way.

So when you’re carving Christmas ham
With all the trimmings and the pies,
Please hold out your hands
And thank the Lord up high.

So when someone asks me
What will my Christmas wish be,
I just look up and tell them
That I have the Christmas wish in me… Jesus! —Billie Jean Watkins

**Billie became a Christian in October 2004, and wrote this poem as she got ready to celebrate Christmas for the first time as a Christian.
