25th by Tori Kelly –

“25th”

Don’t you know that Christmas would be incomplete
If you’re not here with me
Sugar plums ain’t half as sweet as you
Someone go tell Santa I don’t need no gifts
Got nothing on my list
Don’t you know my only wish is to hold you on the 25th?

Season’s here, lights appear
Spread the cheer everywhere, what a year it has been
Got me dreamin’
Oh, the place where we’re safe
From the cold, your embrace
Oh, I just can’t wait
To be home again

Catch the midnight flight
No more silent nights
I’ll be by your side
Oh

Don’t you know that Christmas would be incomplete
If you’re not here with me
Sugar plums ain’t half as sweet as you
Someone go tell Santa I don’t need no gifts
Got nothing on my list
Don’t you know my only wish is to hold you on the 25th?

(Fa-la-la-la-la)
Oh
(Fa-la-la-la-la)
Yeah, yeah
(Hold you on the 25th)

Fancy bags, Cadillacs
None of that, keep the tags
I can do without
I just want one thing
Fireside burnin’ bright
Mistletoe hangin’ high, my only desire
If you’re listening

Catch the midnight flight
No more silent nights
It’s been the longest time
Oh, yeah

Don’t you know that Christmas would be incomplete
If you’re not here with me
Sugar plums ain’t half as sweet as you
Someone go tell Santa I don’t need no gifts
Got nothing on my list
Don’t you know my only wish is to hold you on the 25th?

(Fa-la-la-la-la)
Oh
(Fa-la-la-la-la)
No, no, no
I just want to hold you on the 25th

So catch the midnight flight
No more silent nights
I’ll be by your side

Don’t you know that Christmas would be incomplete (That Christmas, oh, yeah)
If you’re not here with me (If you’re not here with me, baby)
Sugar plums ain’t half as sweet as you (You)
Someone go tell Santa I don’t need no gifts (Tell him I don’t need no gifts)
Got nothing on my list (Oh)
Don’t you know my only wish (My only wish)
Is to hold you on the 25th?

I just wanna hold you, baby
(Fa-la-la-la-la)
Oh
(Fa-la-la-la-la)
I just wanna hold you, baby (Ha)
(Hold you on the 25th)
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
(Fa-la-la-la-la)
So get over here, babe
Oh, yeah

Jamie Cullum - The Pianoman At Christmas - CD – Rough Trade

I could not decide on one song today by Jamie Cullum so here are two for you to enjoy.

Lyrics are below the videos.

Beautiful, Altogether –

Christmas Never Gets Old –

“Beautiful, Altogether”

We are beautiful, when we’re altogether
Round a table that could burst at the seams
Singing old melodies
That just live on the breeze

We are magical, when we’re altogether
With the holly and the ivy in bloom
Share a present or two
With a warm merry tune
Decorating the room
I know that we’ve been untethered
But it’s true, whatever the weather
We’re beautiful when we’re altogether

Just once a year
We’ll gather here
And bring out all the joy of festive cheer
Familiar scenes
The same routines
Of paper crowns and mistletoe and old movies

We are beautiful, when we’re altogether
Why don’t you and I just drift back to shore?
Where the fireplace roars
From the rooftops we’ll call
Merry Christmas to all!

I know that we’ve been untethered
Now come home, where there’s always shelter
We’re beautiful when we’re all together

Christmas Never Gets Old-

It may be a seasoned story
But find a greater feeling
When driving along down the road to home
Christmas, never gets old

I don’t get tired of the singing
Or eating the same old things
Love every one of the rituals
Christmas, never gets old

All the presents are wrapped and the stockings are hung
All the children relieved all the waiting is done

The houses aglow
Now look up! Mistletoe!
Let’s get, on with the show

All of the usual faces
Church bells are reeling me in
Gimme red and green, silver and gold
Christmas, never gets old

All the presents are wrapped and the stockings are hung
All the children relieved all the waiting is done

The houses aglow
Now look up! Mistletoe!
Let’s get, on with the show

All of the usual faces
Church bells are reeling me in
Gimme red and green, silver and gold
Christmas, never gets old
Christmas, never gets old

The Reindeer Revolt- The Poem

Image result for reindeer

‘Twas the week before Christmas

And there was trouble at the North Pole

Several of Santa’s reindeer wanted out of the business

They said working every Christmas Eve is getting old

They told Santa they wouldn’t be flying this year

Led by Donner but followed by Comet, Vixen, and Prancer

Donner tried to organize all the reindeer

But Cupid, Blitzen, Dasher, and Dancer

Those four said no, we enjoy traveling around the globe

We only work one day a year

We love seeing the children and bringing hope

Bringing wonders, gifts, and cheer

We have 364 days of rest and that is just one perk

We can train and relax and take long vacations

You are silly for protesting one night of work

There is no reason for you four to have this frustration

The arguing and bickering was causing more of a division

Both sides believed they were right

Cupid, Blitzen, Dasher, and Dancer made a difficult decision

They agreed right there and then on that fateful night

They had been friends and worked together for years

But the time had come and they could no longer be friends

Donner, Comet, Vixen, and Prancer changed too much it appears

The stress and the fighting seemed to never end

They were sad but they knew they had to go their own way

If they stayed friends Santa would think they revolted too

They liked their jobs and knew there was nothing else they could say

So they severed all ties, it wasn’t easy but it was the wisest thing to do

Santa came and saw the division that had taken place

He saw how Cupid, Blitzen, Dasher, and Dancer had to decide

To not associate with the others that would bring them disgrace

Santa knew he had to find four new reindeer for his sleigh ride

Cupid, Blitzen, Dasher, and Dancer would persevere

They were joined by Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint

So listen up my friends and learn from these reindeer

If you hang with the wrong crowd it is only imminent

That you too will find yourself in a sticky situation

And in trouble you will find yourself likely

To have a sturdy house you must have a strong foundation

Listen to your heart and choose your friends wisely

The Reindeer Revolt – The Story

Image result for reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, but do you know Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint? Of course you don’t, because most of you have not heard of the great reindeer revolt.

It was December 17, 1938. Exactly seven days before Christmas Eve. As you would expect, the North Pole was extremely busy getting everything ready for the big night. All the elves were making the last of the toys for all the good girls and boys. Santa was checking his list, then checking it twice just to be sure no one was missed. Mrs. Claus was busy making snacks for everyone. The reindeer were finishing up the last of their training exercises.

Maybe it was because the reindeer were tired or maybe they felt they weren’t being respected enough but for whatever the reason, some of the reindeer decided they had had enough. Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint had enough and decided they were no longer going to work on Christmas Eve. “We work every Christmas Eve and we are tired of it. We want to stay home and enjoy the evening with our families. All of us should join together and tell Santa no more.”

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer,  and Vixen all said no. “We are not going to revolt against Santa. How can you do this? Think of all the children. We work one night a year. We have 364 days to relax and take vacations and do whatever we want. We enjoy our job and traveling all over the world and seeing all the decorations and the children eagerly awaiting our visit.”

This was not the first time that Dasher, Dancer, Prancer,  and Vixen had seen a bad attitude from Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint. In fact, over the last six months they had seen many warning signs.  They tried talking to them, but never seemed to get anywhere. Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint had even started calling Rudolph names and would not let him play in any reindeer games.

All the reindeer argued and fought for several days. We are right and this is what we are going to do. No, you are not right, we are right and we will stand our ground. Back and forth, back and forth it went.

Finally, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer,  and Vixen decided that this could not go on. They made a very difficult decision, one that did not come easily and one that made them very sad. These reindeer have been friends their entire lives but they no longer saw eye to eye. They told Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint that they could no longer be friends. They didn’t want Santa to think they were revolting too, just because of who they were friends with.

Santa saw what was going on and felt very sad for the reindeer. But, he too, had to make a very difficult decision. If Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint did not want to fly on Christmas Eve, then he was not going to force them. But he knew he needed eight reindeer to fly.

He held tryouts and four reindeer stood out amongst the rest. They were Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. They joined forces with Dasher, Dancer, Prancer,  and Vixen and became the eight famous reindeer you know today. Minus Rudolph of course, he would join the team a little later.

That is why you have never heard of Cinnamon, Gumdrop, Sparkles, and Peppermint. That is why a year later that Johnny Marks wrote Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with its famous opening lines of which you know.  You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, and the rest is history.

That is also why you should be wise and choose your friends wisely. You will be known by the company you keep.

Liz Longley - A LITTLE MAGIC - Album Audio - YouTube

How is Santa ever gonna find us here in this little ol’ town?
How will eight great big reindeer land on the top of our house?

A Little Magic… A Little Magic
A little magic in the air
A Little Magic… A Little Magic
Can’t you feel the magic everywhere?

How does he know what we’ve been up to? If we’ve been good or bad?
How will he slide right down our chimney, just think of all the cookies he’s had

A Little Magic… A Little Magic
A little magic in the air
A Little Magic… A Little Magic
Can’t you feel the magic everywhere?

When your eyes are closed, when the sky won’t snow, when it’s hardest to believe…
he’s counting on you and me

That’s how he does it, that’s how does he make it all the way around the world
The more we believe, the clearer he sees the wishes of every boy and girl

And it’s Magic, oh it’s Magic
A little magic in the air
A Little Magic… A Little Magic
Can’t you feel the magic everywhere?
Oh it’s magic. it’s everywhere

A Christmas Prayer

Image result for charlie brown i think there must be something wrong with me

A Christmas prayer

For the ones out there

Who aren’t full of happiness and  cheer

Who are depressed and worn out this time of year

This time of year can be tough

Sometimes you just want to scream ENOUGH!

Maybe it’s the loss of a loved one

Or past hurts that have been done

Everyone else seems full of glee

You’re thinking “everyone but me”

You aren’t the only one faking a smile

Remember the season is because of the birth of a child

It’s not the decorations or presents

Or all the parties and events

Here is an open invitation

To join in the celebration

38 Bible Verses about Strength - DailyVerses.net

No gifts to bring or trees to decorate

Whenever you are ready, we will wait

A genuine heart with love to give

I believe you are meant to live

Do not give up, Do not be dismayed

If you are having a string of bad days

There is a hope for a better tomorrow

One not promised without sorrow

One not promised without pain

One not promised without rain

One promised that you are never alone

One promised that you have a home

One promised that you are loved

One promised of HOPE,  sealed by His blood

Luke 19:10 | World Challenge

I can’t promise tomorrow will be better

I can promise you have a helper

Instead of falling down it’s time to rise up

Don’t give up when you’ve had enough

The night will fall and the sun will soon shine

Please, please give it some more time

Tomorrow is new

Perhaps a blessing for you

Tomorrow will soon be here

And maybe, just maybe, it’ll be your year

A baby boy was born in a manger

Don’t let him be a stranger

Get to know hope, love, forgiveness and grace

Tomorrow you will gladly embrace

I want you to know you are known

And that you aren’t alone

Don’t give up, YOU are loved, even when you are blue

This is my Christmas prayer for you

1 Corinthians 2:9 — Verse of the Day for 05/08/2017

Talk to your doctor if you are feeling sad for long periods of time. They can refer you to a mental health specialist. If your feelings of sadness during the holidays are accompanied by suicidal thoughts, do one of the following immediately:

  • Call 911.
  • Go immediately to a hospital emergency room.
  • Contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255).

You can improve your mood by practicing self-care during the holidays. Eat a healthy diet, and maintain a regular sleep pattern and exercise program. According to the kept Primary Care Companion to the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, as little as 30-minutes of cardiovascular exercise can provide an immediate mood boost similar to the effects of an antidepressant medication. Joining a support group where you talk to people with similar experiences to yours can also help.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND YOU HAVE WORTH AND YOU ARE LOVED MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

Austin French - Peace on Earth | Positive Encouraging K-LOVE

Peace On Earth by Austin French –

Into darkness
Comes a light
Into silence
A baby’s cry
The birth of freedom
The death of fear
In a manger
Christ is here

Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Long awaited love
Heaven’s come for us
Let there be peace on earth

All division
May it cease
Every worry
May it flee
A weary heart finds
A thrill of hope
The world rejoices
We’re not alone

Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Long awaited love
Heaven’s come for us
Let there be peace on earth

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing

Peace on earth
Peace on earth

Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Long awaited love
Heaven’s come for us
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth

Peace on earth
