What Do You Want for Christmas?

20 Dec

Do you remember making lists of desired presents back in the day? Do you remember when your children made lists of their wants and desires? Do you still have a list?

Years ago I first heard a song called GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST. The song was sung by Amy Grant and was composed by David Foster. Just a portion of the lyrics is captured below.

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, oh

This is my grown-up Christmas List.

The song lyrics go on to describe an adult with wishes and desires for a better world, a safer planet and a more caring humanity. The song emerged in the 1990s and the wishes are still truly relevant. I hope the linked video below works for you, literally and figuratively.
