Okay, so I'm back now that the kids are down for their naps!
Rowan was singing Jingle Bells earlier, and it got me thinking about Christmas Music. Christmas music is so fun. I have some old favorites, like Amy Grant's 'A Christmas Album'. That album was recorded in 198 I think... the year I was born! I actually owned this album for a while, until all my CD's were stolen.
My parents had this on tape when we were kids, and I think we all enjoyed the song 'Heirlooms', and also 'Emmanuel'. You should check it out if you've never listened to it before.
What are some of your favorites? I also enjoy some of the old hymns like 'Joy to the World'. 'Mary Did You Know' has always been powerful. Last year my siblings and I performed this song at our church. I think it's weird that a comedian (Mark Lowry) could write such a serious song, but I guess they can be serious too!
Enjoy the Christmas music, the family gatherings, and the church services this Christmas. It only comes once a year.
Edited to add this: An ancient video of Amy Grant singing 'Emmanuel"!
