My Christmas Carol for You . . . Give This Christmas Away

One of the best Christmas songs I've ever heard was a song on a VeggieTales DVD! I love the message - and the sound - of the song, Give This Christmas Away. Look at some of the lyrics and you'll see why I love this song:


What if I told you, you have the power, to give someone hope far beyond their wildest dreams? What if I told you, it's right there in your hands? In your hands. It's hard to imagine how something so small can make all the difference, tear down the tallest wall. What if December looked different this year? What if we all just

Give this Christmas away. If there's love in your heart, don't let it stay there. Give this Christmas away. And your life will be changed by the gift you receive when you give this Christmas away.

It's feeding the hungry, it's serving the poor. It's telling the orphan, "You're not forgotten anymore!" It's doing what love does, even when no one's watching you.

For God so loved the world, He gave His only Son. So we could be His hands, His feet, His love, His love!

Can you see why I love this song?!!! The video shows Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child which is a phenomenal opportunity for your to be Jesus' hands, feet and love to children in need. Whether you get involved with Operation Christmas Child or another way to help others, find something you can do this year to "Give this Christmas Away!"

Won't you join me in "caroling" your friends this month by "sharing" my Christmas Carol posts with your friends?!
