CHRISTMAS WITH OUT MOMMA
For Mom, this first Christmas without her...
The first Christmas without her
THIS Christmas without my momma
Is so hard
When I say let’s go to mom’s
Then I remember she is not there
You see the Lord took my Mom
Because she was such a saint
I don’t really blame him
She was such a joy to be around
The love she had in her heart
For everyone she met
Strangers came and brought momma gifts
Because of the kindness she had shown
At her funeral was so special
But my tears I shed and shed
She taught me all about Jesus
AND about loving others too;
She never met a stranger
She sang Glory Halleluiah
All her live long days;
When I’ve cried so long for my momma
AND my heart has been in anguish…
God has counted my tears
AND He knew about my sadness;
My Momma taught me to try and try
But when I’ve tried everything
And don’t know where to turn…
Momma taught ME..
That God has a solution.
But Lord I miss the bright lights with my momma
I miss her face when I give her special gifts
I miss her kiss on my cheek
And tell me how special I am.
It’s been hard Lord without My momma
I can’t just pick up the phone
And call her when I am blue.
But Momma taught me
When nothing makes sense
And I am confused or frustrated…
My Momma taught me
That God has the answer that’s true.
So all these tears Lord I shed,
Just knowing I will see her again
Makes me cry tears of joy;
But Lord I miss my MOMMA
This is the first Christmas without her.
Please help me go on with a
CHRISTMAS WITHOUT MOMMA
