So I was thinking - I haven't posted here in a while. Guess I haven't been as positive in my thoughts as I should be - and didn't want to weigh anyone else down with my 'depressing' mood.
But it is December - and I want out of this funk. My sister-in-law sent us an email with some neat "Christmas" songs - and it got me to thinking about all of my favorite Christmas music. You know me and music - say a sentence and I'm singing the song. Music just does that to me. It is so uplifting - and I thought - maybe if I post on a song a day - I can start being a bit more positive.
So three days into December and here is song # 1. These won't be in any kind of special order - just as they come to mind. Yes I know - some of you may remember some of these from older posts, but they have great meaning to me - and as wise Solomon said, "There is nothing new under the sun."
The Glory of the Blood Click the title
The song is performed by a group called Avalon. The first time I ever heard it, was when The Gerber Siblings sang it during a worship service in my local congregation. I never forgot it. It really isn't a "Christmas Song" but a song about the life of Christ, the body of Christ, the blood of Christ.
He was born to die. He was born to reconcile the world to Himself. When I think of Christ and His birth - I can't help but focus on the end game.
So as I put my nativity sets up around the house, I see the little mangers and the innocent baby figures, the mother and father, the shepherds .... I can't help but think about how they unknowing were playing parts in the reconciliation of the world to God.
