Christmas Thoughts

I'm grateful for this time of year and the chance I have to focus on the birth of my Savior. I have a favorite Christmas song that says exactly what I feel. Without further ado, here are the lyrics (I wasn't really going to sing it for you, sorry). :-)

I Celebrate the Day
by Relient K

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You've touched my life
Because here is where You're finding me, in the exact same place as New Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I'll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

Merry Christmas, everyone!
I hope that tomorrow, you are surrounded by people you love!
