Saturday Song: Christina, "Things Fall Apart"

Here's a song you most likely won't hear blaring from shopping mall public address systems or on every radio station you tune in. It's about a woman who feels jaded about all the manic, holiday celebrations. She remembers how Christmas used to be a magical time but it's become one huge bore.

Here the song here.

I think it's a shame that the wondrus birth of Christ is blotted out by all the secular celebrations. People get too drunk and talk too loudly, all the while thinking they're having a good time.

Even with Christians, the Christmas Eve service is only for an hour. Then everybody drinks apple cider and talks about everything else but the Messiah.

Most people don't realize that Christ's coming to our world was forecast from the beginning. When God pronounced judgement on Satan in Genesis 3:15 (KJV) he said, "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."

In order for that to happen, Jesus had to be born. Isaiah 7:14 (KJV) reads, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." That name means "God with us."

So, I hope you liked the song and what I wrote. Please leave me a comment below. But if you'd rather not do that, have a blessed and restful Christmas.
