A Grown Up Christmas List

A Grown Up Christmas List

This is the last Friday before Christmas. I thought I would share a very valid song I heard on the radio the other day. It’s not new, but it IS a good reminder.

As children, typically, Christmas is all about presents and family. While it’s important to keep that childhood sparkle and wonder about Christmas, as we get older, we start to see the world as it truly is. Our wishes for Christmas must become bigger than ourselves. This is the perfect song to remind us to look past ourselves and our families to the world at large…

Grown Up Christmas List, sung by Amy Grant

Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies
Well, I’m all grown-up now and still need help somehow.
I’m not a child but my heart still can dream

So here’s my lifelong wish – My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself but for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

As children we believed the grandest sight to see
Was something lovely wrapped beneath our tree
Well heaven surely knows that packages and bows
Can never heal a hurting human soul

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, oh
This is my grown-up Christmas list
This is my only life long wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list

{“Grown – Up Christmas List” is track #2 on the album The Christmas Collection. It was written by Thompson, Linda / Foster, David.}

Merry Christmas, friends!

    This is a excellent blog, would you be involved in doing an interview about just how you designed it?
