A post and a song that give me hope today

One of my favorite things, if not my favorite thing, about blogging is the ability to go back and look at life, pictures, thoughts, feelings and events.  I started blogging about 5 years ago, before the twins, when my Luke was just a year old.  I go through and read old post sometimes, but not nearly enough.  My favorite posts are the ones that I wrote while pregnant with the Twinkies.  There aren't many of them because I was so sick and could barely take care of my family much less find energy fo blogging.  I came across a good one this morning.  Here is the link in case you are interested in taking a walk down memory lane with me.  The words to that song are amazing, especially considering the circumstances they were witten in.

Currently I am loving this Christmas song, sung by one of my all time favorites!

Here are the lyrics:

who is this child,
asleep in a manger?
the heaven's are bright
the stable's so cold
on this holy night,
have you come to redeem us?
little child in the straw
little child in the straw

who is this babe?
prince of the universe
a donkey is braying
angels are singing
the prophets did say
you would come to redeem the world
little babe in the straw
save us all

and if we lose sight of your sweet face
at the birth of grace, at the birth of grace
light of truth shine like Bethlehem's star
lead us to where you are, show us who you are

merciful one
lover of every soul
the Father's own Son
yes, we believe,
you are able to heal us
Noel, noel,
save us all
