I mentioned here, that I have been listening to the Wow Christmas 2011 lately. I don't know what my deal is this year, but I'm just not in the mood for the regular Christmas songs sung in the regular way.
I sound like Scrooge.
Anyways, there's a ton of songs on that album and several I skip over. I've been skipping the song I Need A Silent Night every time because it's by Amy Grant...and I'm just not in the mood for Amy Grant. Yesterday though, in the van, I was distracted and didn't switch my ipod before the song started. And WHO KNEW that I would LOVE this song?!?
It's the words. I relate to it. All of it. Christmas sometimes seems like more of a chore than a celebration. It reminded me I need to take a time out and have a silent night in order to enjoy the season.
Sometimes Mamma needs a time out too.
And on a random note: I never skip over Go Tell It On The Mountain by needtobreathe or Christmas This Year by Toby Mac. ;)
