Well, it’s almost time to gather the family around the table for Christmas dinner. This year will certainly be different, as both parents will not be with us for the first time. My mother died last year, and step-dad moved away earlier this month. That’s quite a change, but we’ll still have several people gathered around to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
While listening to the Glenn Beck show yesterday, my wife and I caught a brief segment with someone who spoke about the origins of many of the songs we are so familiar with. I don’t recall the details, but it seems something was said regarding the song God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen. The gist of the conversation is that the meaning of “merry” was mighty at one time, at least when the song was written.
Anyway, for your viewing and listening pleasure, following is a beautiful display of lights and song by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra entitled “Carol of the Bells 2.”
May your Christmas be bright and may God be glorified in your lives today and throughout the coming year.
