This year for Christmas Becki asked Brooke to put together a little note or something to give to all our extended family since Christmas shopping was going to be a little hard to do. The message really applies to much more than family though, so we wanted to share this with everyone. Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is a joyful time of year
For friends and family oh so dear

Parties, gifts and food galore
It always leaves us wanting more

We shop and cook and stress and run
Oh isn’t Christmas just so much fun?

But this year has been a different one
It feels as though things have come undone.

As you all know, Becki has been ill
We have a hard time even believing it’s real.

The first rounds of chemo and transplant are in the past.
There are rough days ahead, but we know they won’t last.

It’s hard to get Christmas shopping done while laying in bed
So I hope you will accept this poem as your gift instead.

Becki is not even allowed to roam
Anywhere but the bedroom end of her home.

She is fighting hard and being strong
And wanted to pass this message along.

We need to take the time to think
About the true meaning of Christmas and the joy it brings

Jesus is the reason we create such a fuss
Can you believe how much he has done for us?

We can’t wait till that blessed date
When we all jump for joy and celebrate.

That Becki is better and all is well
And then this will be just a story to tell.

So while we are waiting, remember oh please
Just how much you mean to our family.

The Stevens’ family would like to say
Thanks for your prayers, we feel their power everyday!

Our hearts are filled with so much love
We give many thanks to our Lord above.

So let the Savior and his love reign.
Merry Christmas till we see you again.
