Written by a very dear man. I think this is beautiful.
Carol of the Bells station I built from George Winstons version off his magnificent December album
I just heard this less than ten minutes ago. The CD is now finishing on it last song.
George Winston - love him! “December” is also a personal favorite. Happy Christmas!
I truly think one would get pelted with crackers and sausage and cheese and olives from the Antipasto if one went on too long about the real reason for the celebrating.
That’s a shame.
The tangible has come to mean WAY too much and as I get older, I realize that the tangibles don’t comfort one nearly as much as faith and a feeling of peace and even the memories of Christmases gone by with family that is no longer here.
Perhaps traditions need to be rebooted with an emphasis on why we do this thing we do on Christmas Eve and Christmas.
I fear too many celebrate it because it’s “fun” but don’t believe even a little.
I would never tell those people “don’t celebrate Christmas!” but i would ask them why they bother to.
If it’s not at all about Christ then it’s not at all about Christmas.
To be perfectly frank, i didn’t think nearly enough about the “Christ” part of Christmas until I came upon this thread.
What a precious and beautiful testimony! Thank you. It happens that for various reasons...not bad ones...all okay...I am alone this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I knew I would have a blessed time with The Lord in this different experience. And what you did with your heartfelt spiritual message was to lift me into unity with all Believers around our nation and even the world. I don’t personally know you or any of the other Believers who so regularly appear on Free Republic....but yet I do know you all and you know me. May our Dear Savior be as close to all of you this day and tomorrow as He is to me at this moment, having read your message.
Your words are beautiful. And Amen. Christ, indeed.
Joyful Christmas to you. God bless us, every one.
Bravada, this is not my writing, but I feel your reply and agree with my whole heart. Many of us are singular tonight in our houses, but as long as we know Christ and remember the joyful reason we have Christmas we are never alone. We celebrate with every other soul who knows the Lord and are beyond thankful that He, who loved the world sent His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. Amen and Amen and Amen.
PS - This is the link to Youtube. I don’t know if a more peaceful album was ever recorded.
I liked your article and I like your choice of music you find meaningful with regards to Christmas! Your article reminded me of a song Ive been promoting for a few years. I hope you listen and enjoy! Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much! Perfect starter for my Christmas day.
The words, the words!
“Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
‘TIL HE APPEARED AND THE SOUL FELT ITS WORTH...”
That one always reduces me to a blubbering, joyous fool.
Amen. Just about my favorite Christmas song.
Merry Christmas to you!
I’m so glad I shared it then, it is a heartfelt piece of writing. (I didn’t write it :) )
Merry Christmas to you!
That duet is a favorite of mine, maybe because it IS two very different men singing praise together. Thank you for sharing that, I haven’t heard it yet this season.
Happy Christmas to you :)
Merry Christmas, fellow sinner! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! Glory to God in the highest!
