My Christmas Wish To YOU
By Catherine Pulsifer
If I could wish a wish for you,
it would be for peace, faith, and happiness
not only at Christmas,
but for the whole year through!
I wish that there always be food on your table.
That you always give to those less fortunate.
May you always take time to share,
and thank those who have blessed you.
I wish for time, so you may reflect
on the blessings that you have,
and that you express your love
to those who are dear to you.
May you never feel lonely,
because there are those who care.
That you realize: you are special,
you are unique, you make a difference,
not only at Christmas, but all year!
I wish for your thoughts to be positive ones,
that you never quit, that you never give up,
and that you continue to learn.
I wish for the love, and peace of God,
to be yours always.
May You Always
by Catherine Pulsifer
Faith, hope and charity
May we always have these
Not just at Christmas time
But all the year throughout.
We tend to have more faith
More hope and charity
During the season
But can we keep it always
May you always have
Something to hope for
Faith in something bigger than you
And, dreams that come true.
And may you always
Share with others
Your blessings as a result
Of your hopes, faith, and dreams.
A Child’s Wish
by Catherine Pulsifer, ©2017
Their eyes were dancing, filled with joy
Just looking at all those toys.
The children were visiting a store that day
In hopes to see Santa come their way.
They sat on his lap
They said not a word.
But his jolly old self
Well he made them relax.
The children they told him
Their most wanted wish
Santa smiled at them
And gave them a kiss
When they woke Christmas morn
They raced to the tree
And you should have heard them shout with glee.
Santa made wishes come true you see!
The Three Kings of Cologne
Poet: Eugene Field
From out Cologne there came three kings
To worship Jesus Christ, their King.
To Him they sought fine herbs they brought,
And many a beauteous golden thing;
They brought their gifts to Bethlehem town,
And in that manger set them down.
Then spake the first king, and he said:
“O Child, most heavenly, bright, and fair!
I bring this crown to Bethlehem town
For Thee, and only Thee, to wear;
So give a heavenly crown to me
When I shall come at last to Thee!”
The second, then. “I bring Thee here
This royal robe, O Child!” he cried;
“Of silk ’tis spun, and such an one
There is not in the world beside;
So in the day of doom requite
Me with a heavenly robe of white!”
The third king gave his gift, and quoth:
“Spikenard and myrrh to Thee I bring,
And with these twain would I most fain
Anoint the body of my King;
So may their incense sometime rise
To plead for me in yonder skies!”
Thus spake the three kings of Cologne,
That gave their gifts, and went their way;
And now kneel I in prayer hard by
The cradle of the Child to-day;
Nor crown, nor robe, nor spice I bring
As offering unto Christ, my King.
Yet have I brought a gift the Child
May not despise, however small;
For here I lay my heart to-day,
And it is full of love to all.
Take Thou the poor but loyal thing,
My only tribute, Christ, my King!
God Bless Us Every One
Poet: James Whitcomb Riley
“God bless us every one!” prayed Tiny Tim,
Crippled, and dwarfed of body, yet so tall
Of soul, we tiptoe earth to look on him,
High towering over all.
He loved the loveless world, nor dreamed, indeed,
That it, at best, could give to him, the while,
But pitying glances, when his only need
Was but a cheery smile.
And thus he prayed, “God bless us every one!”
Enfolding all the creeds within the span
Of his child-heart; and so, despising none,
Was nearer saint than man.
I like to fancy God, in Paradise,
Lifting a finger o’er the rhythmic swing
Of chiming harp and song, with eager eyes
Turned earthward, listening–
The Anthem stilled–the angels leaning there
Above the golden walls–the morning sun
Of Christmas bursting flower-like with the prayer,
“God bless us Every One!”
From The Editors of McCall’s Magazine
This Christmas, mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion, and replace it with trust.
Write a love letter. Share some treasure.
Give a soft answer. Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise. Find the time.
Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy.
Listen. Apologize if you were wrong. Try to understand.
Flout envy. Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else. Appreciate.
Be kind; be gentle. Laugh a little. Laugh a little more.
Deserve confidence. Take up arms against malice.
Decry complacency. Express your gratitude.
Go to church. Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love. Speak it again. Speak it still once again.
Christmas is celebration, and there is no celebration
that compares with the realization of its true meaning –
with the sudden stirring of the heart that has extended
itself toward the core of life. Then, only then,
is it possible to grasp the significance of the first Christmas –
to savor in the inward ear the wild, sweet music of the angel choir;
to envision the star-struck sky, and glimpse,
behind the eyelids the ray of light that fell athwart
a darkened path and changed the world.

Peace, love and happiness this season
Cheer spread all around you and yours’ for this reason
For your heart is pure and kind
And compassion rests on your mind
Not as pure as snow
But not as cold as ice
Just cause you are human we know
And as good as they come you are nice
So my prayer for you this moment and forever
Boxed up as gifts but invisible like words
Is that this smile on your face shall not fade ever
For He shall supply all your needs, for He is God
So smile on, smile on
Take in the better around you
The gift of life and the clothes you have on
The meal on your table and the roof over your head too
Smile on, smile on
Share what you have
Christmas brings peace
Be oh so glad!
