There’s something about Christmas music for me.

It evokes both good memories, and horror memories.

It stirs wonder and worship as we sing about our Saviour, the newborn king.

But on the flipside it reminds me of long car rides, at any time of the  year, when we had to endure Snoopys Christmas Album – my brothers choice of music, and long shifts late into the night when I worked as a student at The Warehouse (like Walmart).  Whoever was in charge of the music selection for the store had a fondness for Alvin and the Chipmunks and old style Christmas songs that, well, they made me feel very sleepy and unimpressed.

However that comes that time in your life when you have kids and you have to embrace everything Christmas and create new rituals and traditions.  Kids love Christmas music.  All things Christmas.  And rightly so.  So I have eased my “no Christmas music ban” but do reserve the right to veto any particular songs.

So I am loving the new Pentatonix music!  It fills my heart!  I hope you enjoy it too!

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

 

And again He entered Capernaum and it was heard that He was in the house. Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying.  Mark 2:1-4

Revival Begins When People Talk

 

You know, when there is stuff going in your life, people will see it and want to know more.

 

Seth Godin, a marketing guru says that people like that are sneezers – they catch onto a new thing really fast but more importantly they let everyone in their world know – they’re like an infectious bug that is then sneezed into everyone in the room so before you know it, you’re all sick. The aim of marketing is to get the sneezers excited about a product/service so that they’ll ah ah ah achooo it out into the world.

 

When there is a great sale on at the mall, or a new burger joint opening down the road, or a new movie opening or you’ve just had your hair cut by the most amazing hairdresser ever – don’t you tell everyone? We naturally sneeze what we’re into to the people in our lives.

 

How many of your friends on fb shared the clip of the pentatonix version of a little drummer boy?

You’re called to be a sneezer for Jesus. When Jesus is in the house, you should want the world to know.

 

Mission is not an add-on. It is not an optional extra. It is at the core of who we are.

 

Revival ignites when you have Jesus in the house – your house – when Jesus is doing amazing things in your life – and you then let other people in on the secret.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

not loving the cold – but love the neat scarves my mum knitted for the kids and couriered up to us!  i think today feels like the coldest day ever – we went out for lunch and to the movies with Granny – so was super nice to be able to wrap up warmly!  by the way we saw Despicable Me 2 and thought it was super cute, super sweet and quite funny!  The minions rock!  i’d really like to see EPIC – myself, perhaps not with the kids, maybe not with evangeline… has anyone seen it?  thoughts?

i’ve got a rep at church as “the gluten free girl” – mostly because i’m semi obsessive about things in my life and the huge lifestyle changes i had to make last year.  i have a friend who has just gone gluten free and she was asking me about baking.  i confess i haven’t baked much in the last few months – unless i’m making a never fail LOVE CAKE packet mix… so i broke out my gingernut recipe over the weekend and made crisp crunchy gluten free gingernuts.  so scrummy!  they’d be perfect to dunk in a cuppa coffee…

Kevin Olusola – totally loving this guy.  got hooked on him when my hubby played me a cool coke ad… so being the geek i am i had to google him more… and remembered i had done this before… and then on youtube saw he played with gungor… things were clicking into place.  i love gungor.  anyway back to kevin… wow.  talented.  faithfilled.  awe-some!  He plays cello and beatboxes.  at the same time and is part of Pentatonix
