Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
We’re a little sick and sleep deprived, but we are so grateful for family, the gift of our Savior, and my mom’s bread that is rising in the kitchen. Last night we had our annual Christmas Eve program  and before the sisters performed our three kings interpretive dance number, my dad recited one of my very favorite Christmas songs as a poem: 
The flock was more than peaceful, the night was dark and deep
The stillness wrapped around me; I drifted off to sleep
And when my friends awoke me, oh, what a tale they had to tell
They said the angels told them bout a newborn King
They had a star to guide them
They heard the heavens sing
They said that when they found Him they knew they’d never be the same
Somehow I did believe them, 
Though everything I knew said I should not believe them
This story can’t be true
But there was something magic in the air
That made me feel as if I had been there
I asked a thousand questions
Their answers startled me
The more I heard, the more I thought I knew
This cannot be
And then the struggle started, my head was wrestling with my heart.
Why would a God from Heaven
Come to the world this way?
Why in a lowly stable
Would the Messiah lay?
I shook my head and asked them
To tell the story one more time
Yes I did believe them
Though I’d not seen a thing
I did not go to Bethlehem
Or hear the angels sing
But there was something magic
In the air
That made me feel as if
I had been there
I knew that as the world moves on
through time
There would be more stories
just like mine
About the souls who’ve chosen
to believe
In something that they never
got to see
Do you think you’ll join us
Though you’ve not seen a thing?
You were not there in Bethlehem
To hear the angels sing
But if you feel the spirit in the air
Then just like me you’d know
That He was here
He was here
The King of kings
And Lord of lords was here
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
