Time For Some Stress Relief

Many of you have seen or heard this song because I see that it is a year old.  I just received it in an e mail yesterday and thought is was worth passing on in my blog world.  Christmas is a time that leaves me feeling so frazzled.  We will be leaving for Michigan about a week before Christmas so I have to have everything done by then.  I feel the pressure.


( I still had to be careful and not show half the wall with "surprises " lined up against it.)

 I was grateful for the reminder that just because my living room looks like Santa's workshop exploded in there with gifts and wrapping paper and boxes and tissue all about,  that is not what the season is all about. 

This is:  The story I got with the email is that a child saw the very long line of people waiting to see Santa so he then asked, "Where's the Line for Jesus?"  


The most important thing this holiday is to remember the reason for the season.  And to hug my girls and boys.


This is my all time favorite Christmas carol.   After years in retail where I got so tired of hearing them from November 1st on, sadly, I still cannot enjoy it like I once did.  But this still touches me.


I enjoy the Celtic Women.  I hope you like this little break too.

I just love getting together with my family and singing carols, and remembering what the season is all about. A line for Jesus, now that's what we really need.
Thanks for stopping by, the link is open now.
Hugs,

For some reason I couldn't watch either video. Could be my computer.

Oh my gosh... you have to travel a week before Christmas. I sure don't envy you. Does that mean you won't be home for Christmas?

They are wonderful. I like them both. The story of the little boy looking for Jesus is touching. I wish every child thought like that.

The first one I never heard before - how true is this - are we lining up and fighting to get Jesus - like we do for other presents? sandie

Love this post. A line for Jesus...I hadn't heard that story, but wish everyone young and old was wanting to be in that line. O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas song and the Celtic Women sing it beautifully.

I hadn't heard the song "Where's the Line to See Jesus?" It really puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

I guess this is the time of year that we could all use some stress relief.

I love O Holy Night ... and the Celtic Women certainly do a beautiful job singing it.

It looks like you have things pretty much under control and in the proper perspective. :)

I think O Holy Night is one of my favorites too - as is "Believe" from the Polar Express movie (Josh Groban)

I hope you have a safe and trouble-free trip to the Great White North and the merriest of Christmases.

Christmas to me is all year thru here when people go to bed hungry and work in excess of 50 to 60 hours weekly, they feed their tiny babies and toddlers and children with a piece of bread and peanut butter and jam for themselves for the whole night.oh, my hunger and homelessness, domestic violence, why not be sweet we volunteer for the hungry,battered and homeless..to me to designate one day to be nice, sweet and kind is ridiclous..I stopped celebrating christmas a long time ago when I left a big religion..My husband is jewish the jews believe in heaven on earth not really heaven after you pass from this earth so they treat their families and fellow man well, knowing time on this earth is precious indeed...Your comments upon going to Michigan to visit that is a long ways to go to celebrate the holidays, surely hope it is stress free and loving and kind..that is what a holiday surely must be to get anyh attention from me and my familia..I think our country has gone nuts commercially, why can't people be nice all the time, it doesn't cost one darned dime and could actually help others who are having a hard time in this big depression..just saying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
