*quiet for christmas*

I'm not exactly sure why, but we feel like being quiet this season. All around us, life seems big and slightly stressful. Nothing too terrible at the moment, but we've just had some seriousness about our days. But the quiet haven of our home feels welcome right now and we are enjoying life within our walls for a time. Not that we aren't going out at all, but the typical rush and busyness of the season isn't something we're pursuing this time around. Until yesterday, I was feeling guilty for my lack of festivity, but I'm now feeling good about how we're spending our time. My heart feels reflective and I'm pleased that life is allowing us some breathing room.

This DVD, Behold The Lamb of God has been playing over and over for the last couple of days. We got it a few years ago from a good friend and it has now become a huge part of Christmas for me. The songs have changed how I view this holiday. It is no longer just a celebration of the birth of Christ, but about celebrating the entire, intricate story of God's love--start to finish. This is a quote from Andrew Peterson (the song write) about the concert...

"What I wrote is a concert that tells a story. There's no speaking--only songs, some of which are intimate, some epic, some humorous, all with a purpose, which is to convey the true tall tale of the coming of God into the world."

The cd is good too. If you don't have them, you should buy a Christmas present for yourself:)

This truly is an amazing dvd! Ever since we watched it as a family a few years back, I too feel like the Christmas season is not complete without these powerful songs. "Labor of Love" gives me chills everytime I hear it. I love you!

Yes, we're enjoying a quiet Christmas season too. It seems to be the theme this year. Not as hurried, not as harried, not as stressed. We haven't even started Christmas shopping yet... and I'm not freaking out. Enjoy this time at home.

PS I LOVE Amy Grant's Breath of Heaven song. Beautiful.
