25 songs of Christmas: Dec 23 – Angels We Have Heard on High

Today’s advent devotional reading was about Christmas carols and connecting them to people of faith who have sung God praises all the way back to the Psalmist. It should come as no surprise I love Christmas carols (hence the blogs). We have tried to instill that love of signing praises by singing praises with Jackson a lot this year. It’s one of the few traditional activities that has consistently put me in a good more this season. He likes so many songs, but Angels we have Heard on High is one of his favorites.  He has a book where the main character let’s fly on the Glorias, so he likes to let fly on the glorias.  It’s almost ear piercing.  You can see Susie and I begin to lean away from him every time the chorus approaches, but it makes him happy to just sing his little off key heart off. When I watch him, I smile through the pain because I think we could use a little more of that kind of caroling this close to the big day. It’s good for heart, the lungs, and the soul you lose ourselves in praise, so as you listen tonight go ahead, sing along and don’t skimp on those glorias.
