I decided to do something a little different. I have had many things floating around that I wanted to write about but decided to try something new. When I can complete a thought that is not about baking, wrapping, and figuring out all the family stuff, I will let you know!
O Come Emmanuel.
I think this may be my absolute favorite Christmas song. First may I just say, I love Third Day, and think Mac Powell can sing the Oscar Meyer Hot dog song and I would love it. However, I find this song to be incredibly powerful.
I admit that growing up, I was like, Silent Night again? Really can't we mix it up? I believe this might have been the only Christmas carol that my Pastor must have liked, because it seems like it was all the time, and frankly, I grew tired of it. Now when Mercy Me came out with this version, I found a new love for it. I enjoy Mercy Me, and I like the guitar, and "folky" sound they give this carol.
It is all about the simple guitar. You can hear the words and they are heart felt. Love it!
Again acoustic rock sound, you just can't go wrong.
One word: Elf
"Cotton headed ninny muggins!"
I hope this helps you get in the Christmas spirit. As you rush around this week to prepare for celebrating, I pray that each of you will remember the gift of the baby Jesus. I pray that you will remember that, Jesus was the most important gift ever given. God Bless each of you and Merry Christmas!
