Among the great and glorious gifts our heavenly father sends Is the gift of understanding that we find in loving friends .... For in this world of trouble that is filled with anxious cares, Everybody need a friend in whom they're free to share The little secret heartaches that lay heavy on the mind- Not just a mere acquaintance , but someone who's just our kind ... For somehow in the generous heart of loving , faithful friends , The good God in His charity and wisdom always sends A sense of understanding and the power of perception And mixes these fine qualities with kindness and affection .... So when we need some sympathy or a friendly hand to touch Or one who listens and speak words that mean so much , We seek a true and trusted friend in the knowledge that we'll find A heart that's sympathetic and an understanding mind ... And often just without a word there seems to be a union of thoughts and kindred feelings , for God gives true friends communion.
I Wish You and Your Family , A Very Merry Christmas ! And let us never forget that : JESUS is the Reason for the Season ! May God Bless you and your family this Christmas and throughout the coming New Year !
