A Christmas Blessing For You


I just finished reading a book of Christmas poems called "Christmas Blessings" by Helen Steiner Rice that I really liked. They were all about the true meaning of Christmas, God's gift to us, His Son, Jesus Christ. Instead of Christmas cards she would write poems for her friends at Christmas time. Here's one I chose that was short to share with you:

A Christmas Blessing for You

May Jesus, our Savior,
Who was born on Christmas Day,
Bless you at this season
In a very special way.
May the Beauty and the promise
Of that silent, holy night
Fill your heart with peace and happiness
And make your new year bright!


Her poems are also used on greeting cards today. In fact, I just got two from a this week with the verse by her.


Check out some of my Christmas posts you may have missed last year on my left sidebar. My usual Friday "Things I Learned This Week" post will be posted Saturday this week since Friday is Christmas Day. Happy Birthday, Jesus!
