Can you believe it’s December 1st? Where have the past 11 months gone? Wow….we’re coming into my favourite time of the year already!
I love Christmas. However, what I don’t like is the busyness of the season. Unfortunately, it can bring out the ugliness in us. You know the story. We’re rushing to get things done, trying to find the most sought-after toy your child wants, fitting in all those parties, baking…the list goes on. We forget to stop and remember WHY we celebrate—
The most blessed Gift of all was given to us.
Let’s be still and celebrate our Saviour this Christmas season.
Over the upcoming weeks I’ll be sharing a few of my favourite Christmas songs and some new ones.
I will start with Mary, Did You Know? Many artists have recorded this song written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene. The lyrics are powerful.
Ladies, put yourself in Mary’s shoes. Can you imagine having the Saviour of the world growing inside you? WOW! And that He would someday walk on water, perform miracle after miracle, and then die a horrific death.
I’m not sure we can imagine that.
This song brings tears to my eyes. I’ve chosen a version by a group called Pentatonix. This is amazing. It will give you chills!
What is your favourite Christmas song? Tell us what it is and why.
