Christmas Angel

Christmas Angel...

I have a little angel
I hang upon my tree
She reminds me of another that
I cannot touch or see.
As I place my lovely angel midst
the sparkling lights on high
My other little angel roams the
dazzling, star lit sky.

As I celebrate at Christmas time
God's child who came to Earth
I think back to that special day-
My own beloved child's birth.
As long ago, the world was shown
A wonderous star above,
within my heart there shines a light
of pure undying love.

Perhaps for one, she'll put aside
her thoughts of heavenly things,
remembering this time on Earth
she'll soar on shimmering wings.
Join little ones with shining eyes and
thoughts of Christmas glee,
The holy day, she'll spend with us-
her earthly family.

Perhaps we have a feeling that
our little one is near
As she soothes the sad place in our hearts
and dries our secret tears.
Then she'll take flight on outstetched wings
for heaven up above
while we receive the greatest gift
of God's eternal love.

I have to tell you, I thought of you and of the bears in your sidebar, as I stood in the NICU on Sunday just before seeing me niece for the first time. She will going home with them, but through your teaching of what "could have been", my heart is a little more grateful for her strong new presence.

I just wanted to warn you about the suppossed 'work at home' link above, its a typing site which basically takes your money and then tells you how to place ads with clickbank, I hate this scam almost as much as I hate payday loans!
I have a link to some legit sites in my signature (not affiliate links) I just don't want to see anyone lose money on this scam like I did :)
