Sorry for My Absence

I have had a busy few months. My husband retired, we moved out of our log house surrounded by trees to an open lot near a pond. I am struggling to find my rhythm or my brain for that matter. I think they were both lost somewhere in the move to a new town and house. Either that, or they are yet to be unpacked.

I have struggled to write without any success and so I apologize for my absence. As a peace offering I will be posting a musical advent calendar again this year.

Today I am offering two songs that remind us of our wonderful God who loves us more than we can imagine. Christmas, after all, is not about us, but about Him and the amazing gift he gave over 2000 years ago. My prayer is that you take some time each day this month to think about what Christmas is really all about. A God who stooped down to become one of us so we could live with him forever.

The Father’s Song – Matt Redman

 

Salvation’s Song – Stuart Townend

 

Starting tomorrow there will be a Christmas song posted every day. I hope you enjoy them. Hopefully I will be back to writing in January.

I Hear My Savior

I posted this a few months ago and promised you the music. You can find the recording just below. Hope you enjoy it.

“Come rest beneath my shadow. You should no longer pine”.

He woos and I still slight His voice for others hold more sway.

This mighty God so tender, He will not slip away.

I hear my Savior pleading, His voice so soft and low.

“I paid the awful ransom. How can you from me go?”

“Your life is lost without me. I only want to give.

This new life everlasting, so come to me and live.”

I turn to face Him fully this one who loves…
