O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
I've been working on a Christmas playlist on Spotify, and really enjoying adding the songs that mean so much to me at Christmas time.
This song is a favorite and I thought I would share one of my favorite versions of it with you. The Piano Guys are very talented musicians and this video and the song are beautiful.
I hope you enjoy it.
We have been decorating our home for the season and I was thinking tonight of how beautiful this time of year is with the lights. Lights add beauty and warmth to our homes, and chase the gloom of coming winter away.
We have to find a new place to get our tree. The place we've gone for many years is nearly out of trees. They grew trees for years to pay for their son's college expenses. Several years ago they told us he had finished and that they wouldn't plant any new trees, but that we could keep buying one as long as they were available. This year there weren't very many left and none that suited us, so we are off to a new place Monday morning.
I also will be finishing preparations for our Christmas Tea at church, and doing a modified school day during the month of December.
I hope to remember to take lots of photos this season. Today I'm going to share one that I took on Saturday. My friend Amy and I went to lunch and she brought Kay and I both a special gift. When Kay and Nate lost their baby, I encouraged them to give the baby a name. They decided that since they didn't know whether it was a boy or girl they would name it Noel Morgan (Morgan is Kay's middle name).
I will hang this on my tree every year and remember my grand baby that is with the Lord. One day I'll get to hold this precious life in my arms.
Do you have a favorite ornament that you keep to remember someone?
