What a Week!

I have been away from the blog for a bit because of all the things that have been going on around here!  Is it just me, or is Christmas time the nuttiest, but most fun time of the year?! Just this last week alone, we had church on Wednesday night, Thursday night was an ornament exchange party, Friday night was ANOTHER ornament exchange and cookie exchange party, Saturday night was our annual Music Ministry Party at our house (we had 35 people in our home!),  and then Sunday was church with my hubby (the music leader) and our choir performing “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”.  It was such a crazy busy week, but I thought it might be nice to share this song..especially in light of the mass shootings in Newtown, CT.  This song was written when the composer lost his wife on Christmas day, and also found out his son was wounded in the war. Listen to the words and be blessed.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day with the Trinity Choir
Here are the words…

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."
Till, ringing singing, on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Only the God of  Heaven can bring peace.
