Stories That Sing

 

We all find inspiration for our stories, our writing, in multitudes of places. Music is far from an obscure source. I think I’ve said it many times before that I find my greatest source of inspiration in music. However, sometimes there are songs that need to speak for themselves. The stories I would write from them are mere shadows to the stories they tell on their own.

Oh Holy Night is by far my favorite of any Christmas song. Beyond the lyrics, this is a song of power and joy and peace and love, and prayer. A deep prayer that pushes through my heart and soul every year, every day. There are many incredible singers who have tackled this song, some better than what I’ve posted here. However, I find Danny Gokey’s version a powerful one and one of the better renditions I’ve heard in a long time.

As Christmas quickly approaches, and the New Year is close to follow, I’m taking a step away from this blog until after the New Year. I’m posting this to let you all know that you are in my thoughts and prayers this Christmas. I will also have a post appear on December 28th to ring in the New Year. I may check in now and then to read all of the wonderful bloggers I follow and to say hi now and then, but until January 4th, there will only be this post and then one for the New Year.

I hope you all have a truly wonderful holiday season. May you find yourself surrounded by loved ones, and I pray that the true love of Christ fill you and break any chain that binds you.

  1. I absolutely love this song, and it is my favorite Christmas song. I hadn’t heard it sang by Danny Gokey yet… fabulous!
    I do really love Danny Gokey in just about anything he sings and I actually wrote a blog post for Music Monday and used his version of ‘Mary Did You Know’ as the song this week. Something about the way he sings ism as you said about this song very powerful and also the others I have heard him sing.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
