Silent Night: Christmas Playlist 2018

by | Dec 6, 2018 | Special Series | 1 comment


Christmas is my most favorite time of the year!

I love playing Christmas songs and baking cookies with our daughter. I love hearing our children laugh as they come back inside our home all rosy-cheeked from sledding. I enjoy hearing their stories of who went the fastest and how many times someone fell in the snow.

I love watching Christmas movies together as a family and enjoying my cup of coffee. I look forward to making homemade cinnamon rolls every year for Christmas morning; it’s one of my favorite family traditions.

I just love this time of year. It gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling.

I also love looking out the window and seeing fluffy snowflakes floating slowly to the ground. There’s something so beautiful about the snow. I love the way the cold air smells outside and being cozy in our warm home. I even enjoy getting all bundled and stepping outside to view the beauty all around me. It’s quiet out here in the country where we live, and there’s such a peace in watching the snowfall. It’s quiet. The animals are tucked away, hibernating, and the birds have all flown south.

It reminds me of the song “Silent Night”…

“All is calm…all is bright.” The calm from the silence outside and the snow creates a pretty, bright sparkle. This song brings me to tears every time I hear it. There’s such power in the words! It gives me goosebumps when we sing it at Church. It’s a small reminder of the big reason why we celebrate. It’s Jesus’s birthday!

Can you imagine what it felt like to witness seeing Him for the first time? To be Mary or Joseph and hold Him in your arms and know He was the Son of God? It brings tears to my eyes even thinking about it. I wonder how the wise men felt when they brought Him His gifts. I have no doubt the power of God touched their hearts when they saw the face of this precious little baby.

Let us all remember our King as we celebrate Him and what Christmas is all about! Jesus, the true meaning of life.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” (Luke 2:14)
