Advent Day 14

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.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Reading: On the night of Jesus' birth, a little blind boy sat along the side of the town's road. He asked travelers to lead him to the Christ child, but no one would take the time. Suddenly, the boy heard the faint sound of a cow's bell in the distance, so he followed the bell to the stable. There, the cow led the boy to the infant Jesus.

My daughter performed the song above at last year's Holiday Kick-Off Recital. It is not a popular song with children, as many others are. Among five or six of "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer" songs by other children her age, it stood out well as a more complicated piece. The Princess thought it sounded like a very sweet song and she likes "sweet", so she was happy in choosing it and she played it well.

~ My Lord, I anticipate the music and singing we shall hear in heaven will be far beyond what we can imagine or will ever be able to hear with our earthly ears. I look forward to it. ~
