Your Monday Muse December 2019-Michael W. Smith (ft. Carrie Underwood)

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs ever recorded. I’ve been listening to Michael W. Smith since my days in youth group, and Carrie Underwood is one of our family’s favorite singers. They are both amazing artists, and the combination of Michael’s orchestration and Carrie’s beautiful voice with give me goosebumps every time I hear it, plus it makes me pause and take in the words and remember the real Reason for this joyful Season.

The gift-giving is nice. The time spent with friends and family filled with love.

The trees and decorations make me smile, The food is delicious. The books are fun to read

The light shows are delightful to watch and the parades are memory-makers.

But, none of it measures up to the everlasting peace of knowing God sent His only Son to be born in a lowly manger so that HE could one day give His life to save mine.

That is what the brings me the most joy this Christmas!

Praying you each have a blessed holiday season!

“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” I John 5:11

Merry Christmas!
