Merry Christmas and Advent Blessings to you all! Holiday blog party fun is in full swing this week! A special welcome to Denise Brown and Caregiving.Com with their lovely Holiday Progressive Blog Party. It’s such a blessing to so many of us in the Sandwich Generation to be able to enjoy all these delightful gatherings right from our own home, isn’t it?
So pull up a comfy chair, grab a lovely cup of tea, and enjoy some special Christmas and Advent praise and worship music, as we prepare our hearts for Christmas. Which tea cup am I using? Well, I have some delightful vintage ones from my grandparents as well as some special and newer ones I enjoyed selecting over the years – but currently, they’re all in storage. I left them there in order to join forces with grandkids and senior mom due to various family health needs in both the senior and the junior generations. That’s often one of the “joys” of the Sandwich Generation – having to put things away in storage to move due to caregiving needs. Or perhaps senior parents have moved in with you, which can also require weeding out and storing away special, but rarely used items. And that’s OK! Because, for me – and I know tis true for so many of you, those hugs and cuddles from the grandkids and the sweet smiles and thank yous from our senior parents or other beloved relatives make it all worthwhile.
Nowadays, I enjoy my tea and my cocoa in this adorable Snowman cup one sweet grandchild gave me last Christmas. So, here’s a virtual “CLINK” from my cup to yours, and one of my Smilebox eCards Creations with a favorite Christmas song to touch our hearts and homes. Point of Grace has such lovely Christmas praise and worship hymn songs and fun music on their Winter Wonderland album and, to me, For Unto Us is a special treasure to enjoy and to share with your whole family – from young grandkids to elderly senior parents.
I do love this beautiful hymn song, based on Isaiah 9:6...
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
…both the music and the words! Don’t you? I get wonderfully caught up in it and am reminded of Who is truly in control in this world full of struggles and difficulties. What a blessing! How about you? What’s your favorite Christmas praise and worship music? 🙂
