The Message of Love at Christmas

What a marvelous, mysterious season of the year. The story of Jesus' birth is one I love to hear over and over again because it tells the story of how much God loves us. 

"This is how much God loved the world. He gave his Son, his one and only son....God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger at us, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again." according to John 3:16-17, The Message Bible

We have to take His teachings on love and put the world right again. Whether it is your world of family, friends, neighborhood, church, organizations, use love to find peace in your corner of the world. Can you envision peace like that? Love can do it,

Burt Bachrach's song, What the World Needs Now, isn't usually thought of as a Christmas song, but this year I am petitioning to put it right up there with Silent Night and Jingle Bells. Listen to Jackie DeShannon's recording of the song.

Want to join me in nominating What the World Needs Now as a Christmas song?

Wishing you a joyful Christmas 
filled with the blessings of hope, peace, and love!

YES! I agree ... What The World Needs Now is a great candidate for a Christmas song... and it is so true. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas season that will spill over into a great new year.
