Our Christmas List
“There is a list of folks we know, all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time, we go and take a look,
And that is when we realize that these names are a part,
Not of the book they are written in but of our very heart,
For each name stands for someone, who has touched our
And in that meeting they’ve become etched in our mind.
We really feel we are composed of each remembered name,
And while you may not be aware of feeling quite the same,
Our life is so much better than we were before you came,
For once you have known someone, the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word, or of a friendly face.
So never think our Christmas cards are just a mere routine,
Of names upon a list to be forgotten in between,
For when we send a Christmas card that is addressed to you,
It is because you’re on that list of folks we’re indebted to.
And whether we’ve known you for many years or just a few,
In some way you have had a part in shaping things we do.
So every year when Christmas comes, we must realize anew,
The biggest gift that God can give, is knowing folks like you.”
