     American Christmas Remembrance

by Kenneth J. Ellison.

Ws 3The spirit of Christmas takes flight
Neath the star of Bethlehem’s light
Filling hearts and minds with delight,
Joyfully we await Christmas Eve night.

Star 1Jesus 1

Tis the season of good will and mirth,
Joy and love will encircle the Earth,

As we feel the Christmas spirit perform
Remember the beloved brave in uniform.

World 1They’re in the mountains of Afghanistan
And on the high seas of China and Japan,
From the bloodied desert sands of Iraq
They’ve served well thru hell and back.

Star 1

In steaming jungles and burning sands
They stand up gallant for foreign lands
But this Christmas, many will be alone
Over this big blue marble we call home.

World 2

Whether in a crowd or at a lone outpost
They will recall past Christmas ghosts,
Calling back memories around the tree
Of mother and father and loving family.

christmas tree 1
No matter the distant shores they roam,
Hearts will yearn for family and home
And when Christmas bells begin to chime
For many brave warriors it’ll be crying time.

When we are seated for a dinner grand
Let us in reverence clasp grateful hands,
Let us pray beneath the Bethlehem star
For our military, no matter where they are.

Star 1

prayer 1When we gather around the Christmas tree
And chorus carols our hearts full of glee,
Remember our lonely soldiers so far away
Who long for family and home this holiday.

christmas tree 2

Let us send a message borne by the wind
To proud warriors who protect and defend,
We salute you brave soldiers of the world
Wherever your flags are raised unfurled.

We Americans of the red, white and blue…

Stand shoulder to shoulder beside you,
We love and respect you for duties done,
Merry Christmas to each and everyone.Ws 3

    I think that it`s more than appropriate to remember our people serving our countries in the armed forces . Over the years , service people have their thoughts centered on the loving families they have left behind , none more so than at Christmas time . So we should say thank you to them , and ask our loving Heavenly Father to bless them and protect them at this special time,

    Blessings
    Ron.

    • Thanks Love and very wise words, yes they gave their all and they give their all, they have no Loved ones to share with, or gifts from them that they can open together, there is no Christmas Celebration on Christmas day like we have but for those who believe in Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who gave everything, even for those who hated Him, Christmas is in their heart and His Love was with them from the Start, they may be far away but in their hearts He will stay.

      Christmas Love my dear husband, you mean the world to me at Christmas and all through the year – Anne

  2. An inspiring post that moves our hearts and make us truly see what Christmas is all about. Beautiful my friend. Wishing you and your family a blessed, wonderful Christmas. God bless.

    • Yes I agree Island Traveler, this man has a heart of Love , so many are having a grand, fun time at Christmas and good for them and us too but let’s not forget those who can only dream and wish they were with their Loved ones.

      Thank you dear friend and I will continue to wish you many blessings and for those you Love too , may the Beauty of Christmas past and the Joy of Christmas present, fill your heart with Love that overflows all year.

      Christmas Love from both of us – Anne.

    So vital to this time of the year. It was well said.

    • Yes very much so Barb, what a kind man he must be to want to commend others as he has done.

      At the Nursing Home today, I was talking to Alex, he spent a lot of his time in the War as a Prisoner but he escaped with his life and for that he gives thanks. We need to remember Soldiers who served their Country in the past too, Christmas can be a very lonely time for them, like it is for Alex.

      Christmas Love – Anne.
