Merry Christmas from Me - 2009

In reflection back to my trip to church this past Sunday (12/20), I was listening to a Christmas CD, alone in my car so I had it cranked up! I heard the lyrics "How could Heaven's heart not break, On the day that you came?" and it hit me. I'd never looked at it from that perspective before. Heaven knew that Jesus was born to die for all mankind. And, I was on the verge of tears for nearly the entire church service. What a sacrifice!  What an amazing sacrifice! And, my one wish this holiday season is that all mankind would know that Jesus is the reason for the season!  What a difference that would make!

Gloria
The Christmas Sessions

by MercyMe

Lyrics:
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King

See Him in a manger laid
Whom the choirs of angels praise
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid

While our hearts in love we raise

How could Heaven's heart not break
On the day, the day that You came?
Salvation's reason to celebrate
On the day, the day that You came

Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
