I Celebrate the Day

I have been thinking of Christmas (I mean, who hasn't... It's December!) It has been on my mind all day. This is most likely because the snow is falling, it's freezing, and I am constantly wearing long socks under my pants. Winter is finally here in Minnesnooooowwwta!

I wanted to share a song with you. It is by Relient K & when they put out their first Christmas album.... I would listen to this ONE song for hours on repeat. It is so challenging & relates to my previous post on Jesus being born to die.

You can watch & listen here while you read the lyrics. So powerful!

I Celebrate the Day
Relient K

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let
You know how much You've touched my life
Because here is where
You're finding me
In the exact same place as New Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize

That You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever


And so this Christmas I'll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for

You to save my life
