when you listen to christmas what do you hear??
angels singing or the "i wants"
joy to the world or "i hate christmas"
what if mary and joseph hadn't listened to the christmas story?
what if they hadn't believed the angels?
what if you don't listen to the christmas story?
what if you don't hear the angels?
what angels you say.......
the sound of a little girl saying baby jesus' name
the sound of the guitar and mandolin
the laughter of family
the words of "how can i help"
the prayer of the needy
the voices of the choir
the sound of the rain
the words "For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a SAVIOR, which is Christ the Lord."
the gift of the Holy Spirit
these are the sounds of christmas
not the ripping of paper
not the "ugghhh, really"
not the vacuum cleaner
not the beep of the oven
not the complaints in wal-mart
these are the sounds of the christmas distractions
i hope you hear christmas this year so that you may keep it in your heart and mind for the whole year through
a good friend of mine said with jesus in your heart, everyday is christmas morning
listen for Him
