Merry Christmas!

Christmas is finally here! Here at our house we are HUGE fans of Christmas music. I mean, Matt has probably well over 100 Christmas albums (most digital, thank God!) and he tries to bust it out earlier and earlier every year.

My all time favorite playlist includes The Nutcracker followed closely with Carol of the Bells. Added to my my list this year is Modern Post's, "This is War." I just love the lyrics so much. We love the Jesus Storybook Bible and read it all the time to the kids. Every story in the book explains how Jesus rescued us, and I just love that word used to describe Him. The song sings, "He is the rescue we've waited for!" What a great reminder this Christmas as we celebrate Jesus' birth and our rescue from sin and death.

Merry Christmas to All!!!

This is war like you ain't seen
This winter's long, it's cold and mean
With downcast hearts, we stood condemned,
But the tide turns now at Bethlehem.

This is war, and born tonight
The Word as flesh, the Lord of Light,
The Song of God, the low-born King,
Whom demons fear, of whom angels sing.

Hallelujah! A Child is born!
He is the rescue we've waited for!
The Throne of David, He will restore
And reign with mercy forevermore!

This is war on sin and death,
The dark will take its final breath;
It shakes the earth, confounds all plans,
The mystery of God-as-man!
