Dearest Jesus

Hi. I don’t know exactly what to say.
How are You doing? I hope You’re doing alright.
I know You have the world on Your shoulders.
And here it is nearing Your birthday.
I wish things were so different for You.
It’s not fair that the world is at bad terms
On the day of the celebration of Your birth.
This is also a time of peace, and love,
And good will toward all men.
Yet here we are arguing over things
That aren’t even any where near as bad
As You having to die for us.
So many men are away from their families.
Wishing they could just be there for them.
And then there are people in our country
Who aren’t even thinking about the guys overseas.
It’s not right.
And then there are the homeless,
Who have no food, no clothing, no home,
And no one to spend Christmas with.
May everyone stop to think about what’s really going on
And how it’s a day of rejoicing
In Your day of coming to our world to save us.
Have a wonderful and loving Christmas. Happy Birthday.
My gift to You is a prayer for everyone
To be at peace in thought of You today.
Forever Loving You.

Wish You Were Home

Hey Guys, I’m sorry you’re over there.
You should be over here with your families.
I know you wish you were.
Christmas isn’t the same without the ones you love to share it with.
So many people hustle in worry of getting presents.
The perfect gift.
All you really need is to be there, and you’ve got more than you need.
But hey guys, I wish I could tell you how proud I am of you.
And how much I wish this would all stop so that you could be home for Christmas.
It’s a day of celebrating the birth of Christ,
And you have to spend it fighting for a country
Who’s too selfish and self-centered to think about what you’re going through.
Instead of how it costs to get the gas to go to the mall for Christmas shopping.
Guys, I hope it’s all over soon.
May you have a good Christmas and please know someone cares, I do.

They Are Fighting

The guys are fighting for us.
There may be no bombs falling,
But there are children crying for their daddys,
And wives in tears over having their husbands gone.
They have no way to kiss their families for Christmas.
And their mother’s are heart stricken for their safety.
All those friends and loved ones that are separated like this,
Are not doing it to party.
They are already fighting in their hearts.
That’s why they’re over there.
They’re defending their country just by being over there.
How can you say they’re not fighting?
Can’t you see they are already at war?
And they are fighting for you.
God be with them.
They need Him.
