I have enjoyed so much sharing my photos and insights into the making of my ‘homespun Christmas’, but I have one more thing I must share before I can call this blog series complete.
One of the most delightful parts of the Christmas season is the array of songs, filled with cheer, celebration, and messages about our Lord Jesus Christ.
These are usually reserved for this one month out of the year, so we play them and we sing them again and again, while we can, because at any other time of the year, our audience would give us that look that says “Are you singing Christmas songs?”
I love them all, and I savor the tradition of all the songs I grew up with. But the Christmas song list now includes so much more than ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Silver Bells’ and even the one about those lovely, warmed chestnuts. (Just what are chestnuts anyway?)
These newer melodies of Christmas bring the year-round-worthy messages of hope and peace, and celebrate the birth of the Christ-child, the Messiah and Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, all with a more current sound and lyric. But the timeless message is the same!
This message takes center-stage in the celebration of this extra special holiday, and for me, He truly is the reason for the season!
So, as you make your final preparations for anticipated holiday gatherings and feasts, I’m sharing some of this new and fresh Christmas music with you, along with some favorites brought back to life with new breath!. May you feel joy and refreshed elation! Just click on the link below.
The title of this final draft says ‘crowning glory‘, but I’m not referring to any grand finale of my own making.
This is all about giving my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ the highest place of honor at my holiday table of celebration. The honor to which He is worthy!
“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
