The Reason

It's hard not to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. Not to get carried away with all the gatherings, must have photo opportunities, gift buying and Santa this & Santa that. I know. Why...because I am guilty of it. I admit it. I have two little ones and while we talk of Jesus and his coming, it is VERY easy to get caught up in the Santa excitement. After all they are only little and BELIEVE in that for so long. My hope is that they will NEVER forget to BELIEVE in the real reason for the season. My goal is to enable them to know the beauty of this little life that grew to a man that died for them. For me. For you. For that stranger neither of us knows.

I came across this song while visiting my friend Esther's blog. I was busy wrapping gifts and humming "here comes Santa Claus" when I felt like I needed a break. I didn't go straight to bloggy world. I OF COURSE went to Facebook world and saw her update on her nativity days. I clicked on over and while reading her sweet post music was playing. I left a comment and still music played. I enjoyed the music so I went back to wrapping and throwing away my scraps of paper when a certain song came on. I don't believe I had ever heard it before so it made me stop. Then. Then it made me cry.

Give it a listen and I hope that it reminds your heart about the REASON of this season. Simply click on the name below.

One of my best friends sang this at a concert at the beginning of December. I'm so glad to hear that it touched you like it touched me. Blessings, friend.
