Christmas Every Day


This is one of our favorite Christmas songs, written by Smokey Robinson (Christmas Everyday lyrics © EMI Music Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Group).  
He was born so far away
So the story's told
We remember Christmas day
When winter days grow cold

With the time it passes by
We put away the trim
Then we live and wonder why
We can't remember Him

The Christmas star shines once a year
And then it fades away
Keep the spirit in your heart
It's Christmas everyday

It's not the bells and it's not the snow
And it's not the gifts we get
But He was born so long ago
It's easy to forget

Peace on earth, goodwill to men
But men can't go alone
We get lost along the way
But He can bring us home

Remember Him throughout the year
Without the star above
He left us all a Christmas gift
He left the gift of love

The Christmas star shines once a year
And then it fades away
Keep the spirit in your heart
And it's Christmas everyday

Whatever your beliefs if you act with kindness, love, thankfulness, forgiveness, and a good heart, then yes, it really is Christmas every day, and the world would truly be a better place! I bet a song like that really touches your soul. :)

The teen choir at church sings it every year. I had no idea it was done by artists like Kenny Rogers and Smokey Robinson. I just think it is a beautiful song that reminds us to focus on what is important, not just the material aspects of this season.

Merry Christmas!

I bet it is even better sung live on Christmas eve. Merry Christmas, Jess!

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
