Bethlehem Town

2017 Song Four (Seven Songs for My Savior): “Bethlehem Town” by Jars of Clay

My husband is not a fan of Christmas music.  I am not sure why.  It’s not like I play it all year round – I am one of those people who waits until after Thanksgiving.  But over the years, I have managed to find a few that he will listen to with me without grumbling.  […]

Lyric Lines Vol. 2: Seven of Seven Songs for my Savior

Most of my album choice are somewhat methodical.  The Relient K “Let It Snow, Let It Reindeer” was an impulse purchase several years ago.  The album is as fun as it sounds.  Yet while several of the songs make me smile, this one made me cry. The main time that I get to listen to […]

Lyric Lines: Four of Seven Songs for a Savior

Chris Tomlin’s Glory to God in the Highest is one of the most worshipful Christmas albums!  All of the songs point to the Savior.  But the one that is my favorite actually features another lead vocalist – Audrey Aussad.  Since we are getting a few flurries here today and tomorrow, this song, “Winter Snow” seems […]

Lyric Lines: Two of Seven Songs for a Savior

I first heard Nicole C. Mullen’s Christmas in Black and White album at my friend’s house when I listened while watching her boys for her one December morning.  Considering the fact that they are now both in high school, I have liked that album for quite awhile.  One that I gladly added to my Christmas […]
