Richardson: I am glad I got to see Christmas this year

I didn’t get to walk down the Streets of Gold,

but I walked down the byways of Earth.

I didn’t get to see the angels flying, I saw Earth angels making others happy by caroling and making the elderly and the shut-ins happy by brightening their lives.

That is loving others as yourself.

I didn’t see Mary, Joseph and The Babe in the manger, or the shepherds tending their sheep, or the wise men bring gifts.

I did see the Star in the East where it always is.

But I did see the live nativity scenes at churches.

Saw people of faith sharing and enjoying letting others see the story of the reason for the season, what it really means.

The was also the shepherds with their sheep, there were wise men with gifts, and the star was in the East.

I am glad I got to see Christmas on Earth this year.

And the reason for the season was there among everyone as the people told the savior of the world, He was there.

I am glad I got to see Christmas on Earth this year.

I didn’t see Mama, Daddy, Grandma, Gradnpa, or the others that had gone on before.

But I did see young people singing glory to God in the highest, peace on earth good will to men, meaning every word as they came from the heart.

I am glad I got to see Christmas this year

I am glad I got to go to Heaven to see Christmas this year.

I got to walk down the street of gold and see the angels flying, the heavenly choir singing.

I saw Mary and Joseph and the babe in the manger, saw the shepherds tending sheep in the night, saw the wise men bring gifts. And saw the star in the east.

But most of all I saw the reason for the season sitting on his throne.

And the heavenly choir singing Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men.

I am glad I got to go to heaven to see Christmas this year.

I got to see Mama, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, and all that had gone on before.

I am glad I got to go to heaven to see Christmas this year.
