Tell Them Today

On Friday I think we were all shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the shooting of 12 little girls, 6 little boys and 8 adults, when a heavily armed gunman, aged just 20-years-old himself, forced his way into a school in Newtown, Connecticut (USA). I’ve found myself constantly thinking of the families and friend of all those who were killed – An atrocity like this is bad enough at any time of the year, but it’s particularly sad as Christmas is so close.

Therefore today I want to remind you that although we often sing, “Christmas is a time to love”, loving others and showing our love for others should not just be a Christmas thing, it’s something we should do all year round. So take some time out today and every day to tell those you love, particularly your children, just how much they mean to you, and how much you love them.

Don’t Save It All For Christmas Day

Don’t get so busy that you miss
Giving just a little kiss
To the ones you love
Don’t even wait a little while
To give them just a little smile
A little is enough
See how many people are crying
Some people are dying
How many people are asking for love

o don’t save it all for Christmas day
Find a way
To give a little love every day
Don’t save it all for Christmas day
Find a way
‘Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on

How could you wait another minute
A hug is warmer when you’re in it
Oh, baby that’s a fact
And saying I love you’s always better
Seasons, reasons they don’t matter
So don’t hold back
See how many people in this world
So needful in this world
How many people are praying for love

So let all the children know
Everywhere that they go
Their whole life long
Let them know love
