30. Thank you, my Little Star

     by Paul Berchtold, November, 2010

Thank you my child, thank you my friend,
How I love you without end,
You're so precious, yes you are,
You're becoming my little star.

You're my star doing the dishes,
You're my star fulfilling my wishes,
You're my star sweeping the floor,
You're my star feeding the poor.


Thank you for being my eyes and ears,
Looking and listening for those with tears,
Easing the pain of one of the least,
Makes you welcome at my heavenly feast.

You're my star doing the dishes,
You're my star fulfilling my wishes,
You're my star sweeping the floor,
You're my star feeding the poor.


Thank you for being my hands and feet,
A help to the hurting with smile so sweet,
Thank you for each and every good deed,
Especially helping those in need.

You're my star doing the dishes,
You're my star fulfilling my wishes,
You're my star sweeping the floor,
You're my star feeding the poor.

Published on Thanksgiving

It was a cold snowing Thursday evening when I published this poem. It was on the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States of America.

I wrote the refrain a few weeks earlier. Then I finished writing the 3 verses on Thanksgiving Day - an appropriate day to publish this unique one-of-a-kind poem.

This poem comes out of a heaven sent inspiration I had 13 years ago, that God really does thank us for serving him.

We serve him by serving the least of his children.


The Biggest Thanks Imaginable

If it is important for us to show God our gratitude and give him thanks, remember, God will not be outdone in generosity.

He doesn't miss the least good thing we do. In fact, he has created the immensity and happiness of heaven to give us thanks - an eternal reward - for all the truly good we do. And it will be a joy for us to return our thanks forever.

How could we begin to repay all the things he does, and what he will do for us in heaven, which here on earth we cannot begin to imagine?

May the Lord be blessed and thanked forever, for the great things he does, for all his encouragement and inspiration!


In this Poem, God is Speaking

I had finished writing a Christmas Short Story The Littlest Star just a few days earlier, so it was easy to come up with the title of this poem, "Thank you, my Little Star."


It's About Our Ticket to Heaven

There are so many people saying who - and who not - can get into heaven.

I'd rather listen to God himself, and what he himself says, and I hope you want to do the same.

After all, only God is the rightful judge of who can and who can't come into the special kingdom he has prepared for each fortunate and blessed recipient.

Let's hear what Jesus himself says:

When the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.

Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

  • For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat,
  • I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink,
  • I was a stranger, and you took me in,
  • Naked, and you covered me,
  • Sick, and you visited me,
  • I was in prison, and you came to me.

Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee? Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee?

And the king answering, shall say to them:

  • Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.


The Wrong Ticket

Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels.

  • For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat,
  • I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink.
  • I was a stranger, and you took me not in,
  • Naked, and you covered me not,
  • Sick and in prison, and you did not visit me.

Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee?

Then he shall answer them, saying:

  • Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me.

And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting. (DR Matthew 25: 31-46)
