Give Love On Christmas Day
There is a special song that Daniel Motta, a gifted young member of Friendship Baptist Church in Pasadena, sings this time of year. It’s a beautiful song with a powerful but simple message, titled “Give Love On Christmas Day.” Some of the lyrics read: “No greater gift is there than love… What the world needs is love... Why don’t you give love on Christmas day?” We all need love, especially those of us who are bereaved and grieving the loss of a loved one.
The death of someone we love leaves us with a heavy heart and a myriad of feelings: sadness, emptiness, loneliness, depression, frustration, and even sometimes anger and guilt. We feel far less than jolly and joyful. The holiday season can be a real challenge.
To the bereaved I say look up to God, reach out to others and be patient with yourself. The following poem has comforted many at Christmas time:
“My First Christmas in Heaven”
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights, like Heavens stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas Choir here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me; I see pain in your heart.
But I am not so far away, we really aren’t apart.
So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear.
And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can’t count the blessings or love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
