FAVORITE CHRISTMAS CAROLS
My favorite Christmas carol would have to be Silent Night.
Every year, on Christmas, my home church will have a service, and it always
ends with every person getting a candle, one of the elders lighting their candle, the lights being turned off, and the flame shared with other elders and then with each person in the congregation, one by one down each row and pew. As all the candles are being lit, the choir starts to file out singing Silent Night
with the congregation joining them in worship. The choir stands at the back of the sanctuary as we finish singing the carol, with the only light coming from the candles that each of us holds.

My favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night , because it is filled with awe and inspiration. The announcement of Jesus' birth and redemption for mankind is a message which still holds true for today as it did 2000 years ago. Praise God!

Mary's Boy Child
When I think of the song Mary's Boy Child, it immediately brings out the 'mother heart' in me, and the joy of the births of our two children. I relate to Mary in the sense of joy of giving birth to this dear Baby, Who she undoubtedly loved beyond measure - just like I did ours. Just as God had a perfect plan for our two children's lives, He had an even greater plan for this precious Boy Child, Who, praise the Lord, did not stay a Baby, but became the perfect Sacrifice for the sins of mankind!
O Come All Ye Faithful
My favorite Christmas carol is O Come All Ye Faithful. There is nothing I enjoy more than praising our wonderful Lord! It is a privilege to come before Him, joyful and triumphant - at Christmas time and at ANY time of year or stage of our lives. He is to be adored above any other person or thing and this song is a reminder to do just that.

My favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night - a very beautiful carol
for its sheer simplicity. It always gave me a very special thrill to sing
that when our youth group went carolling at various homes, back when I was
just 13 and starting youth group.
