Go, Tell It On The Mountain!

little churchOne of my favorite childhood memories is sitting on the floor listening to this Christmas album on the record player.  I would hear the children’s happy voices singing and the friendly man’s voice announcing each song, and I wondered what it was like to be inside that warm and cozy church singing along with them.  For many hours, I would listen and gaze into the windows of that cardboard church, trying to catch the nuances of their laughter and songs.

We all have that yearning – to be loved, to be happy, to know that there is more.  On Christmas day, when all the shopping and baking are finished and the stores are closed, the world stops and we remember this very important day.  It is the day that changed the world forever.  It is the day that was promised and prophesied from the time of Adam and Eve.  It is the day when a host of angels descended from heaven and announced it to the world.  Wise men traveled from far distances to bring gifts.  King Harod tried to kill it.  But from this one day forward, hope is available to every person in the form of a Savior.  It is this day, born from very humble beginnings that God came down to earth.

For those that believe and put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, we will all meet someday in heaven, and I’m sure we will have some wonderful stories to share!  For now, let us go and tell everyone about what is inside that wonderful little church!

Go, Tell It On The Mountain.

Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Savior’s birth:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

Down in a lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation,
That blessed Christmas morn:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

About Life and Heart Matters

I love sharing the stories I see around me every day - of life, family, of the heart and of the spirit. I've written for Guideposts and Angels on Earth magazines, participated in speaking engagements across the U.S and France, and enjoy working with humanitarian efforts. I also like spending time running, swimming and reading, all of which can be done on a beach somewhere!
