I think every Season has favorite parts for me, but this time of year, my heart is just full of love, and joy, peace and serenity, and excitement.
I love snuggling down in our warm, cozy home and enjoying the people that live in it.
These songs are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
This one was played at our churches 2013 Season of Light performance, and you have to imagine it being sung by 3 Mary’s on stage.
~Mary with newborn baby Jesus, swaddled in her arms
One time he even began to softly cry as she sang to him, it was the most hauntingly beautiful moment! You could hear the crowd gasp and began to cry, too.
~Mary with Jesus as a 12-year-old, arms around each other, she is so thankful she found him in the synagogue, after he went missing
~Mary in black mourning clothes sitting below the cross, her son, our Savior…draped across her lap.
May we never forget what a Miraculous Season we are in, as we anticipate the birth of our Savior.
One who was born to die….
Wow. Let that sink in for a moment.
Roll it around in your mind as you are tempted to focus more on the wrapping paper and party list, then the swaddling cloth and the reason we celebrate the Season.
It was all for you, and me.
Thank you, Father.
Want some help next year in keeping Christ in Christmas?
