Every Shining Christmas

 
Every Shining Christmas


Some years every dream’s fulfilled, there’s joy in every place.

Some years there are disappointments, in our hearts an empty space.

Some years hopes are high with babies to be born.

Some years there are shadows falling, someone to be mourned,

but still,



Every blessed Christmas,

Yes, every shining Christmas

I’ll take my place with those who sing your praise.

And through tears of joy or tears of sorrow

The bright star to Bethlehem I’ll follow

And worship you with all my heart once more.



Some years our legs are strong, we’re running hard the race.

Some years with a body weak, we stumble to the pace.

Some years in abundance, some years with less,

But at Christmas, as always, your sweet name we confess.



Every blessed Christmas,

Yes, every shining Christmas

I’ll take my place with those who sing your praise.

And through tears of joy or tears of sorrow

The bright star to Bethlehem I’ll follow

And worship you with all my heart once more.

Beverly Chitwood Varnado c2001


May your Christmas be filled with God's presence!
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Matthew 2:11

  1. First of all I want to say Merry Christmas love and health to you and your family. I am a reader and enjoy your blog. I had to borrow your wonderful Every Shining Christmas and post on my Facebook page. The words simply express what we do to celebrate the birth of Jesus while we go through the circumstances of life. Thank you for sharing your message with us.
