O Holy Night


O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas carol.

It stirs me to the core every time I hear it, and even more so after my son's group did a God rod performance to it a week ago.  In addition, one of the music pastors at our church sings it at our Christmas Eve service from the very depth of his heart and makes me cry every year.  Not tears of sadness but tears of great joy and awe at the precious gift we have been give.

Have a blessed Christmas and may that holy night that occurred so many years ago touch you in a new way this Christmas and in the year to come.

Blessings,

It was my mother's favorite song, also, and one of my faves as well! It's been sung at our Hanging of the Greens service for years and it always gives me goosebumps! Hope your day as been special...it's been a wonderful time with family and friends at our house!

I am so glad I ordered those lacey nesties :) It's in the place of honour in the living room with Aimes and Melisa's cards :)

Marisa, I am with you. I have chills now just going over this song in my mind. I'm sure with your son's performance to this, it is even more special. That night is what Christmas is all about.

Yes, I know what you mean! There are several songs that move me to tears. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We got a foot of snow...yikes! We do not do snow very well in the southeast...lol! It is gorgeous, though!

My favorite too, Marisa. Can hardly make it through the song without getting choked up. That and Ave Maria.

Christmas Hugs....a little late!
