Santa's Christmas Eve Prayer

The sleigh was all packed
The reindeer were fed
But Santa still knelt
By the side of the bed
"Dear Father" he prayed
"Be with me tonight,"
There' much work to do,
And my schedule if tight"
"I must jump in my sleigh
And streak through the sky
Knowing full well
That reindeer can't fly."
"I will visit each household
Before the first light
I'll cover the world
And all in the night."
"With sleigh bells a ringing
I'll land on each roof"
"To get in the house
Is the difficult part
So I'll slide down the chimney
Of each child's heart"
"My sack will hold toys
To grant all their wishes
To supply will will be endless
Like the loaves and the fishes"
"I will fill all the stockings
And not to leave a track
I'll eat every cookie
That's left for a snack"
"I can do all these things, Lord
Only through you
I just need your blessing
Then it's easy to do
"All this is to honor
The birth of the one
That was sent to redeem us..
Your most Holy Son"
"So to all of my friends
Least your glory I rob
Please Lord, remind them
Who gave me this job...."

Sweetie I love this poem. Is it not just the most sweetest ever? It seems like I have heard it before, but it must have been a long time ago. I loved it, so touched my heart today. I thank you so much for sharing it with me.

Please stop by for a cookie today. I think you will love them.

Country hugs...Sherry
