You know what is totally awesome? When a beautiful Christmas song about the birth of Jesus Christ is playing and your 7 year old says “I love this song.” Especially considering that Micaila usually asks me to turn my music off. To which I reply:
“Radio? Who needs a radio?!” 😉
Seriously, I don’t know what happened in that department. Unlike sister Ryann, Micaila just doesn’t have quite the love for music that her daddy and I do.
With the exception of Christmas music.
Which brings me great joy. 🙂
It’s as if I can see her starting to really grasp the message and meaning of Christmas. Her, Ryann and Caleb have been dancing around the house singing a song they learned for their school Christmas play.
“Happy Birthday Jesus I’m so glad it’s Christmas. All the candles and lights make the holiday nice. But the real gift is YOU.”
Thank you Lord for the amazing wonderful gift of Your precious only Son.
In honor of our sweet Saviors birthday and Micaila’s new found love for Christmas music I thought it would be cool to post a list of our favorite Christmas songs. I encourage you to look up the lyrics on a few…. or all of them. 🙂 The message of Jesus coming is so important and powerful. Sometimes I need a fresh reminder of why we celebrate Christmas.
Michael Card: Immanuel
Meredith Andrews: He Has Come
Jars of Clay: Little Drummer Boy
Joy Williams: Here With Us
Michael W. Smith: All Is Well
Amy Grant: Breath of Heaven
Casting Crowns: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Brandon Heath: The Night Before Christmas
MercyMe: Josephs Lullaby
Chris Rice: Welcome to Our World
As I started recalling some of my favorites I realized “Wow, I have A LOT!” I could keep going but I don’t want to overwhelm you if you decide to check a few out. 🙂 What about y’all? Do you have some favorite Christmas songs?
