It's been another year of joy with you
And Christmas is the time to give,
A gift of thanks for helping me
Another year to live.
I want to celebrate real love
As that's what Jesus came to share,
Love and joy and peace
That we His life may bear.
So this special time I come to give
My thanks to you this day,
For giving me your heart this year
In all you chose to say.
Most of all I thank you so
For wanting that I know God's best,
You prayed, encouraged, lifted me
That each day I might be blessed.
Such friendship, is a precious gift
That another seeks so much,
To give of their own self
That I feel truly loved.
But, that IS truest friendship
And that is what you do,
So I thank you this Christmas
That you sought to be so true.
You gave me loyalty, as confidante
So I could learn to trust,
That you would give me virtue
And never make a fuss.
You helped me with decisions
And choosing a right path,
You helped me reach for what you know
I needed in my heart.
You helped to make the me I am
And I am glad to say,
I thank God He gave me such a friend
To be with me always.
Thank you so much.
God bless you at Christmas and always

Poetry From The Heart
We may describe friendly feeling toward another
as wishing for them what we believe to be good things,
not for our own sake, but for theirs,
and being inclined, so far as we can,
to bring these things about.
