Sometimes Christmas is hard. I talked about that a bit yesterday, with song #1. It hasn’t been as hard this year, but sometimes being in the Christmas spirit is something that you have to choose to do.
And sometimes no matter how hard you try, it feels like it’s impossible.
You can be surrounded by the decorations and the merriment, and even by everything that has been Christmas to you in the past, and still feel hopeless.
Last year, I think I sat down and listened to this song and cried so many times. Because it was so accurate for how I felt then.
Christmas never really disappears, though. It’s always there, lurking around a corner, just waiting for you to find your way back.
But I have to be honest – I’m not really a huge fan of the newer Grinch movie. This song is about the only thing I love from it.
Give me the good ol’ animated Grinch any day. 😀
“Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8 WEB

Christmas is found outside the tinsel and lights and inside the people around you. It’s the connection with another that brings the smiles and joy. I love the lights and tinsel, but it’s like a diet of coco cola and brownies. Pure sweetness but not much substance. I didn’t like Jim Carrey’s Grinch either. I liked the old one who did not eat glass and had a thing for a babe. Yikes.

Love this song! (I quite like the movie as well, though my favorite will always be the animated version.) This song actually came out one of the years I was having the worst times of dealing with my depression vs. Christmas. Made me cry in the theaters. But I love it now. (I loved it then too.)
