You are looking at my favorite of the three trees in the house. There is the “big tree” in the living room, a table top tree in the office, and this six and a half foot narrow tree in the TV room. What makes this tree so special? Every year we have placed a photo ornament of each of the grand kids on this tree since they were infants. When they turn eighteen we place their last ornament on the tree. This year the youngest grandchild turned eighteen, so the tree is complete with seventy-two memories of Christmas past. Every ornament is a trip down memory lane and a reminder of the importance of family. Have a blessed Christmas.
I usually save this song for later in the marathon but I decided to move it up in the order this year. “O Holy Night” is a Christmas classic and has been covered by virtually every artist with vocal chords. Some have performed this song very well, but I don’t think there is a more appropriate vocalist for this song than David Phelps. You really need to listen to this through a good set of speakers.
Another classic that I usually reserve for late in the marathon is the Hallelujah Chorus. I love everything about the concept of this video.
May your Christmas and your heart be filled with the glory that is Christ and His amazing, saving grace. To God be the Glory!
