It is here! At last, it is Christmas! :) I think I've never enjoyed a Christmas as much as I am enjoying this one now. There is something so special about having Christmas fall on a Sunday so that believers everywhere can gather together and have a church service that's both "normal" and special. I enjoyed this so much today. Now I get to spend the rest of the day with my family!
The song I specifically chose to post for today is one of the ones from Keith and Kristyn Getty's new CD. I love this song, and thought it was perfect to save for today.
In this season of much singing I ask those who love our Lord Jesus to ask very specially for singing hearts. It would be sad if the lovely Christmas hymns and carols sounded only like a noise--even a noise of music--to Him. But if they are the glad and wondering adoration of our hearts, then I think they will give Him joy. Do not forget what Christmas cost Him--Gethsemane and Calvary.

Have a wonderful Christmas! Make sure to take some time to read the story of how it all happened. My favorite part of the Bible that talks about this is Luke 1:1-2:40. Enjoy!
To grant to us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.
