I never made a New Year’s Resolution. Ever. As a child, I didn’t see the use of it and as I look back, I have to commend the young me. Why not make a resolution? Everyone was doing it. I even have a godfather that would chastise me to make one. I didn’t know why then, but I know now.
It’s Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir
Daddy says there’s not much time
She’s been sick for quite a while And I
know these shoes will make her smile And I
Want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight”
“The Christmas Shoes” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I’m not a sentimental person but I could totally relate to this song. So, whenever it comes on, I go into deep thought, usually reminiscing of the past. As a child, I would listen to this song and tear up because I was that kid in the song – one that knew there was a possibility that her mother could meet Jesus at any given time.
I know this Guy and He wants you to get to know Him too. (Notice the capitalization? That’s just how special He is.)
He writes you love letters that are signed with His name at the bottom, but you always return to sender. He looks out for you but you call it luck. He has a whole love story written out for you, but you call it a fairy tale.
