“All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” was a famous song when I was a kid. I can remember watching Alvin and the Chipmunks belt out this song between their two front teeth! Our two front teeth are important; they help us sing, whistle, and cut into food. Life would be bland without our two front teeth! But most importantly, our teeth help us talk – ask any 6 year old who is missing their two front teeth.
“Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory
in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants, you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” Psalm 8:1-2
The psalmist reminds us that we are to praise God and give thanks to the heavens for who God is in our lives. As you wait for Christmas and even into the New Year, read a devotion from this book and say a prayer. Use your lips, and teeth, and tongue to praise God.
Feel free to download the devotional and use in print or online. It’s free thanks to all the talented contributing writers.
All I want for Christmas contains stories about pianos and high top sneakers, ugly sweaters to drones, and most importantly all the people, companions, and family we miss during the pandemic.
