Christmas Shoes

Have you heard that song?
I have 2 favorite Christmas songs, this is one of them. I heard it on the radio probably 5 or 6 years ago and fell in love with it. It is my favorite song, not that I think its exceptionally pretty, but I love the words and the meaning. Last year my mom got a book that has the stories behind so many favorite Christmas songs. Christmas Shoes was in that book. I loved the story, pretty much goes along with the song, but gave more insight. I pray this year that I will be able to constantly remind myself the true meaning of Christmas. What are we truly celebrating? It's the birth of Christ. This leads me into my second favorite Christmas song of all time. Mary, Did You Know? I love this song, because it correlates the birth of Christ with his life & ministry as well. I sometimes just think of the birth of Christ and the ministry of Christ in two different subjects. However, they are one in the same. Without His ministry and the atonement, Christ's birth would have just been another birth. Let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas. Let us all be filled with more charity. more compassion. more hope. less skepticism. less doubt. xoxothemostwonderfultimeofyear
