A Quiet Christmas With Christ:
Do you ever feel that your life doesn't have enough "quiet?"
We live in a fast-paced world, and we tend to fill up every
spare moment with activity, noise, bustle, and busyness. The
Christmas season can be especially "quietless" as
you run from shopping trip to class party to church program
to family gatherings. The list goes on.
Yet, amidst the hurry, the Christmas season beckons us to
return to cherished memories - to hold on to the wonderful
blessings of life - and to renew our heart for the Lord Jesus.
This Christmas, I invite you to de-compress from the demands
of your day and reconnect with your Savior and His "big
picture" for your life. I don't know about you, but I've
come to cherish those moments when its just quiet - no phones,
no E-Mail, no demands, no hurry. Whether the stillness brings
an unexpected call to meet with the Lord, or a gentle hug
from my growing little girl - the stillness brings clarity
to what really matters in life.
During such "quiet" times, the right music can help
settle the heart, calm the spirit, and comfort the soul. The
right melodies can beckon you to "stay a little longer"
- to linger in His presence.
What better season to focus on God's incredible gift - Jesus
Christ - and what better time to rest in Him? Thank you for
listening and may God use this music to warm your heart, brighten
your Christmas, and draw you and yours closer to Him for many
Christmas seasons to come.
from "Carol of the Bells"
See the Star so clearly shining in the darkness of the night;
Wise men of the east 'tis guiding, by its radiance led aright.
Hear the angel voices singing, "Peace on earth, good will to men!"
All the bells of Heav'n are ringing, echoing to earth again.
