Usually, I’m the person who is TEAM NO CHRISTMAS UNTIL AFTER THANKSGIVING.
This year, it wasn’t even November 15th and I was cranking out decorations, playing Christmas music and stockpiling supplies for holiday goodies. Who is this person?!
After the past 11 months, my soul has definitely needed a reason to celebrate and share gifts with those in my life.
I have needed an outlet for creativity and for thoughtfulness.
I have needed some sparkle, some light.
Life can be awfully dark and cruel at times. But Christmas truly is a season of peace and light, if we let it be.
I discovered the artist Sleeping at Last a couple of months ago and the quiet hope threaded through many of the songs resonates deep within.
Their song “Snow” captured me immediately. Haunting, yet joyful. Thoughtful and a little melancholy. But overall: hopeful.
Whether you’re facing Christmas with less people around the table than the year before, or your burden seems to weigh a little heavier, or maybe you just need to be reminded of what’s truly precious, this song is for you.
